On May 25, the Army garrison at Ansbach, Germany – including David Chavez Post 1982 – held a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, an opportunity to recognize area veterans of that war.
I am very proud of our community and our post. We had tremendous support from the garrison, Ansbach High School, 9JROTC battalion, Service Credit Union, the commissary, the PX, Bank of America, several on-post colleges, Ansbach Spouses' and Civilians' Club, and the list goes on.
We had donations from American Legion members and others in the community. The Legion helped plan, execute and clean up afterward. Legion members helped plan and execute the entertainment and prepared the food. They welcomed and registered the Vietnam veterans and purchased the pins for them.
