A total of 110 persons made this trip in September. The passenger list consisted of 2 WWII Veterans, 7 Korean War Veterans, and 32 Vietnam/Vietnam-Era Vets, their caregivers and our committee volunteers.
This group was a great collection of Veterans. They were really great people to have on a trip. It was an outstanding weekend. Below is a copy of the "Team Picture" of the group taken by our trip photographer, Duane Mullen at the Vietnam Wall.
