Vietnam Veterans of America Ocean City (Md.) Chapter 1091 awarded Bill Gibbs, owner of The Dough Roller restaurants, an honorary lifetime membership at its meeting on April 1. Gibbs was instrumental in planning and placement of the Barry Berger Memorial in front of Ocean City’s City Hall and launching a scholarship named after Berger.
Berger was the only Ocean City native born to be killed in action in Vietnam and was best friends with Gibbs. Gibbs recently presented the chapter with a $2,000 donation for the scholarship fund, which will be used for scholarships for the NJROTC cadets at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, Md.
