Chapter 131 Holds Two Vietnam Veterans Day Events

Vietnam Veterans of America Berks County Chapter 131 honored those who served with National Vietnam Veterans Day ceremonies in Reading and Topton, Pa. “For the veterans, it will be a time of fellowship and camaraderie as they share their stories and experiences,” chapter spokesperson Diane L. Simmons told the Reading Eagle ahead of the events.

In Reading, veterans, chapter members, family and friends gathered at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Center Park for a commemoration. Chapter President Bernie Bingham spoke, and Veterans Making a Difference invited attendees to the Paul R. Gordon Veteran Social Center for cake and refreshments following the event.

Later in Topton, more than 100 Vietnam veterans were awarded commemorative pins for their service at a ceremony held at American Legion Post 217.
