Come All Who Are Thirsty Veterans Group is proud to announce that we are hosting a TRUE "Welcome Home" to ALL Vietnam Veterans. It has been 50 years since the Vietnam War began. Our country was torn apart because of the mixed feelings of why the United States got involved in the first place. There were 58,220 military members killed and 304,000 wounded out of 2.7 MILLION that served in that theatre of operations.
We at Come All Who Are Thirsty Veterans Group want to return the favor to express our deepest gratitude for what the Vietnam Veterans has sacrificed "over there" and here in THEIR OWN COUNTRY for the past 50 years. This is OUR way of just saying "Thank you" and showing the Vietnam Veterans that they are TRULY appreciated by a country that has forgotten them for SO long.
