Fort GreeneVille DAR Honors Vietnam War Veterans Day at Greenville Public Library

Fort GreeneVIlle Chapter DAR, a 50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemoration Commemorative Partner, would like to invite everyone to visit the National Vietnam War Veterans Day display at the Greenville Public Library during the month of March. On the second floor, the display will feature personal military items of the late Doug Black. Doug was a US Army Staff Sargent, E-6 from 1965 to 1967 and his Vietnam tour was 1966 to 1967. He was in the 196th Light Infantry Brigade C/Company. He was a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal of Valor and was inducted in to the Ohio Military Hall of Fame with Valor in April 2015.

The display is in honor of our local Vietnam Veterans including pictures of recent events with our local Vietnam Veterans.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day is observed on March 29th. It recognizes Veterans who served in the US military during the Vietnam War. In March 2017, President Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Proclamation Act of 2017. The Act officially recognizes March 29th as Vietnam War Veterans Day annually. Welcome Home!!
