Vietnam Vets to be honored by Congresswoman Esty
Kent's First Selectman is calling on Vietnam veterans to pick up a form from his office for recognition in the Department of Defense’s Vietnam War Commemoration 50th Anniversary program. Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty will be honoring Vietnam veterans from the 5th Congressional District by presenting them with a lapel pin provided by the Department of Defense. The ceremony will be held September 8th at 10:30am at Coe Park in Torrington. Veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin. The lapel pin cannot be presented posthumously.
