Honor Vietman Vets with The Parade That Never Was
Warrior's Weekend is a local non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving wounded American heroes from across the country. That's why the group has decided it's time to recognize those who fought for our country, yet came home without being honored, and who many have suffered emotionally because of how they were treated. The Vietnam/Vietnam Era Veterans.
Warrior's Weekend's motto is "to thank, to heal, to open hearts and we feel it is TIME to do just that in the lives of these brave and courageous Vietnam Veterans by hosting a “Welcome Home Parade” that they should have had a long time ago."
According to the official press release, here's the lowdown.
