VVMF Celebrates 10th Anniversary
On Oct. 27, the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation celebrated its 10th Anniversary and held its Third Annual Gala, “A Salute to Patriotism” at the Vietnam Era Educational Center and the Robert B. Meyner Reception Center, located on the grounds of the PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel. This event brought together corporate, political and veterans’ community leaders to recognize and honor veterans and those who are dedicated to helping veterans.
Former Georgia Senator Max Cleland and Maj. Gen. Charles F. Bolden, Jr., both provided stirring remarks. Severely wounded during his tour in Vietnam, Senator Cleland headed the Veterans Administration during the Carter Administration and his advocacy on behalf of veterans is well known. Maj. Gen. Bolden, a decorated Vietnam veteran flew four missions aboard the Space Shuttle. The gathering was also treated to a superb precision drill demonstration by a troop from the Rahway High School Marine Junior ROTC Unit.
