I attended a "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans" Celebration last night sponsored by Hospice of the Chesapeake. I was a little reluctant to attend, but must say after going with my wife & some of our VVA Chapter members, was glad I did. It was held at the BWI Hilton, who did a great job with the hors d'oeuvres and drinks. There were several guest speakers, three of whom I really think  touched everyone in the audience & deserve a special "Thank You" . The first was MIDN Sarah Howard who thanked all the Vietnam Veterans for their efforts and sacrifices during the Vietnam War. MIDN Howard explained how the Vietnam Veterans rescued her family from the North Vietnam troops who were taking over the South. MIDN Howard is now a very proud member of the U.S. Navy attending the U.S. Navy Academy in Annapolis in Maryland. After her speech there were many wet faces in the audience as well as hers. One could definitely tell it was most heartfelt, not to mention her commitment to the United States with her service in the United States Navy.

The other outstanding speaker was Command Sgt. Major Forbes from the U.S. Army who gave a very inspirational message, and after his message, I believe most of the Vietnam Veterans in the audience were ready to reenlist.

Last, but definitely not least was Vietnam Veteran Wayne L. Miller (USMC) who did his GREAT rendition to "God Bless the U.S.A." All in all, I believe it was a very well planned event and enjoyed by all the Vietnam Veterans in attendance. Once again Thank you to Hospice of the Chesapeake and all of their co-partners, as well as the BWI Hilton.
