A wonderful **multi**-dimensional tribute to those who served in Vietnam.*
This is probably one of the best videos on Vietnam that I have seen. It
certainly brought back memories.
*This video is 28 minutes long* , so be sure you have time to watch it all
the way through. There are thousands of similar accounts of those who
served in Vietnam, and this video does a great job of accurately expressing

Please pass this on to others – Veterans who served in any capacity.

Posts that wish to submit resolutions at State Convention, remember you need to present said resolution to the
District first. It must be voted on and if it passes, it will then be brought before the State Convention
Resolutions Committee for consideration.
