Bedecked in their new uniforms that include jackets, charcoal grey slacks, chapter caps and ascots, Kent County Chapter 850, Vietnam Veterans of America, sat for a photo at their monthly meeting on April 16.

The unit, composed of a dozen members, was created by chapter secretary Don Coffman to provide a presence at funerals, presentations, and other chapter events.

“This team will honor all fallen Vietnam Veterans so that they are never forgotten,” said Mr. Coffman.

“We applaud Don’s initiative and work in making this happen. It took a lot of planning, practice, and coordination,” said Joe Startt Jr., chapter president and group member. “Chapter members were happy to allocate the funds for this worthy effort.”

Chapter 850 has nearly 200 members and 39 associate members. All Vietnam and Vietnam-era veterans are invited to join. Associate membership is available to family and friends from the community.
