Chapter 32 Raises Flag for Vietnam Veterans Day

Members of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 32 gathered in Ozone Park, N.Y., alongside elected officials, law enforcement officers and members of the public last month to raise a flag in honor of National Vietnam Veterans Day.

State Sen. Joseph Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach) organized the event. “When realizing that March 29th was the upcoming National Vietnam Veterans Day, I wanted to do something in the community,” he told the Queens Chronicle.

“Vietnam Veterans Day is the day that we honor these guys who put their lives on the line,” said Doug Williams, vice president of Chapter 32. “This is finally the recognition they should get, and rightly so. I say to the Vietnam vets: ‘Welcome home!’”
