Vietnam Memorial Picnic Recap

The General Anthony C. McAuliffe NY-NJ Chapter of the 101st Airborne Division Association held its annual Vietnam Veterans Memorial Picnic on June 7, 2014 at The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Holmdel Township, New Jersey. The chapter, family and friends remembered all those who served in Vietnam with a moving ceremony. The ceremony was followed by a jovial picnic on the museum lawn.

The picnickers were pleasantly surprised by the appearance of a group of young ROTC members who came to visit the memorial. Members of the chapter were able to share their advice and stories with the recruits and inform them that there are many organizations like the 101st Airborne Division Association available to them for support after they leave the service.

Thank you to all those who attended the picnic! Many thanks for any and all donations of food and beverages.
