Daisy Mountain Veterans who fought in Vietnam will receive the Department of Defense 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Medallion and a commemorative lapel pin.
“Some of these veterans hold multiple combat decorations up to and including the Distinguished Service Cross, America’s second highest military award. Sadly, many have never before been recognized for their service,” said event organizer Jim Oliveri. “We hope this event will help to rectify that situation.”
The Arizona Veterans Band will perform. Public is invited. Lawn chairs welcome. The ceremony is expected to last an hour.
