Members of El Paso, Tex., Robert E. Chisolm Chapter 844 played an integral role in the city of El Paso’s nearly year-long effort to honor its Vietnam War veterans.
The series of Welcome Home events, which began in August 2016, culminated with a June 27 breakfast program in which veterans received copies of Our Heroes, Their Stories, a commemorative book honoring their service.
“Our chapter was involved from beginning to end,” said Chapter 844 Information Officer Elias Camacho. “We were consulted for events and some of our members were part of the committee formed to organize, plan, and carry out the events. We volunteered to help out with filling gift bags, passed out handouts, and did just about everything that was needed.”
