Chapter 938 Joins Local Partners

Collaboration

Bitterroot Valley Chapter 938 in Hamilton, Montana , recently became an official member of the local group Commemorative Partners, which honors Vietnam veterans. On May 4, chapter member Jim Hamilton presented the group with a flag, plaque, and pins commemorating the beginning of the Vietnam War. “Tonight we commemorate the fifty-year anniversary of the beginning of the Vietnam War, ” Hamilton said. “Over three and a half million soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines served in that war and unfortunately returning service men and women were not honored by the American public as had been the case in previous wars. The veterans that we honor here tonight would tell you that we are the fortunate ones who came home to our family and friends. We’d also be the first to tell you that we must never forget those who did not return.”
