Thousands of vets gather at reunion
It was a weekend for meeting up with old friends, enjoying good food and music — but most importantly, paying tribute to fellow veterans.
Tens of thousands attended the Florida Vietnam and All Veterans of Brevard Reunion in Melbourne’s Wickham Park through Sunday, May 4, a gathering that marked its 27th year.
Though the opening ceremony took place on Saturday, May 3, events began on April 27 when the Traveling Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Wall was emplaced on the park grounds. On April 28, the presentation of wreaths was made, and the opening ceremony for the Wall was conducted.
