VFW to celebrate Vietnam War -- 52 years later

Greenwood VFW Post 5864 will host their fourth annual Vietnam War celebration on Saturday, Nov. 18 beginning at 6 p.m. Any Vietnam veteran, or veteran from another war, whether a member or not, is invited to attend. The celebration, however is geared to those Vietnam veterans who served “on the ground or in the waters” around Vietnam.
Last year, nearly 100 members gathered to reminisce about their time in Vietnam. Tony Kirk played music from that era and several members sang karaoke.
The beginning of ground operations began with the first combat troops deploying to Vietnam in 1965. There were 3,500 U.S. Marines who landed near Da Nang in South Vietnam. Their primary purpose was to guard airfields, airports and supply depots.
Unfortunately, the Marines began combat operations within a few months of arriving and thus began the 10-year war.
The VFW, through the Dept. Of Defense’s Vietnam War Commemoration partnership program, is working in local communities to recognize the sacrifice, service and tremendous contribution Vietnam War veterans made to our nation.
This year, those arriving or leaving South Vietnam in 1967 will be honored.
