Received a nice note [attached] from General Hugh Shelton USA(Ret) thanking us for our participation in the Welcome Home event at Patriot Plaza, at which he was the keynote speaker. You may not be aware that this was his final public appearance, as a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Thanks to all of our Chapter members and Tidewell for making this event such a success for over 2,000 attendees. I believe we passed out over 700 pins to our Vietnam veterans.
