Honor 50 years on

Estus Smith, adjutant of David Chavez Post 1982 in Ansbach, Germany, reports that the post organized and hosted a Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemoration event in the post exchange area of U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach on March 29.

Historical displays were set up, and post and garrison officials were present to hand out pins, buttons and certificates to Vietnam War veterans and widows.

The Ansbach Hometown Herald did a piece on the event, including Post 1982’s role.
