TERRY LYNCH, PRESIDENT, VIETNAM VETERANS ASSOCIATION CHAPTER #299 ANNOUNCES: QUAD CITIES PEARL HARBOR SURVIVORS TO BE HONORED AT A WELCOME HOME CEREMONY AND THE DONORS WHO MADE THE TRIP POSSIBLE WILL BE ABLE TO MEET THE MEN FROM THE "GREATEST GENERATION" AND TRUE AMERICAN HEROES

On Saturday, December 14, 2013 a reception honoring our Pearl Harbor survivors and to recognize the Quad Cities citizens whose generosity made this trip a huge success. The reception will take place at the Viking Club, lower level, 1450 41st Street Moline, Illinois from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

During the reception, the donors will be able to meet with the Pearl Harbor survivors and their escorts and hear first hand the positive impact that the trip had on our local heroes.

Also during the reception each of our Pearl Harbor survivors will receive a flag which was flown over the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor and will receive a certificate of authenticity and appreciation signed by Richard L. Williams, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy. The flags flown over the U.S.S. Arizona were provided by Quad City native, Petty Officer Second Class Andrew L. Bemtson, on behalf of the VVA Chapter #299, as a small token of his appreciation for the heroism and dedication to duty demonstrated by our Pearl Harbor survivors in America's darkest hour.

The VVA Chapter #299 graciously extends an invitation to your organization so please come out and meet our local American heroes.
