Daughters of the American Revolution to honor Vietnam War Veterans

L to R: Police Chief Paul Blackwell, DAR Member Sandy Sebren and Mayor Lane Curlee

The City of Tullahoma and the Tullahoma Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) are pleased to announce they have joined with the Veterans Administration and the Department of Defense as a commemorative partner to honor the nation’s Vietnam War veterans.
Wednesday, March 29, 2017 has been designated as a day to express gratitude and support to Vietnam War veterans across the nation. It was the last day American troops were on the ground in Vietnam. At 2 p.m. at City Hall, Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee will read a proclamation honoring Vietnam Veterans, and DAR Regent Mary Ann Scott will host a flag raising ceremony. A Vietnam Commemorative flag will be raised by the color guard and fly over City Hall for three days. The flag reads, “A Grateful Nation Thanks and Honors You.”
The objectives of the commemoration are to thank and honor Vietnam Veterans and their families; to highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War; and to pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States.
The public is invited to the event, especially Vietnam War veterans and their families. For more information contact Sandy Sebren at 455-3572.
