Chapter 931 Participates in Vietnam Veterans Day Event

Vietnam Veterans of America Pineywoods Chapter 931 participated in a day of honor in recognition of National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29. The annual ceremony, held in Nacogdoches, Texas, attracted a record number of guests.

Speakers included Vietnam veteran J.D. Collett, who had difficulty transitioning from combat to civilian life. Collett had a successful career as an undercover narcotics agent, but the two-time Purple Heart recipient experienced a family tragedy that sent him reeling in the 1990s.

Collett encouraged veterans to get help if they experience anxiety, sleeplessness or other disorders. “Go get help,” he said. “Help is out there.”
