The March 21 Membership Meeting for the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 227 at Glory Days Grill (6341 Columbia Pike, Falls Church) speaker is David J. Silbey of Cornell University, a professor of military history. Silbey will discuss the D-Day operation and examine the landing and what came after to understand the challenges the Allies faced in not just breaking into Fortress Europe, but breaking out towards the German homeland. Attendees are encouraged to come early for the 7:30 p.m. meeting to enjoy a meal and meet other members. Spouses and friends are always welcome.
The book, “In Honor and Memory” that lists and describes U.S. and Allied military installations in South Vietnam and Southeast Asia, is available for viewing. See Bill Dumsick at the meeting for more information.
Finally, the traditional 50/50 raffle will be drawn. Prizes for the raffle includes cash and a artistic hand carved wooden bowl by member George Jones.
Donations of plastic forks, oatmeal cereal packets and strong paper soup bowls will be collected for the Lamb Center.
