Members of Chapters 203 and 995 are giving to and receiving service from the Chattanooga, TN and Jackson, TN communities.
Chapter 203’s Tennessee Vietnam Veterans Wall will be available for public viewing in Jackson at the request of Chapter 995.
The exhibit is similar to the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. The traveling monument to Tennesseans who were killed in combat in the Vietnam War will be visiting West Tennessee for two days in July.
Chapter 203’s Tennessee Vietnam Veterans Wall has traveled throughout the state with its membership. Its previous public appearance was at the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Celebration in Chattanooga in March. After visiting Jackson, the Wall will travel to Athens, TN in late July.
Additionally, Chapter 203 recently received medical equipment that will be donated to a veteran in need.
Air Force and National Guard veteran, David Holmes, donated an electric scooter and a trailer to the chapter so that veterans who cannot afford the equipment could be helped.
Holmes, aware of the struggles veterans sometimes face, said he wanted to help other veterans in need of assistance.
