BROUGHT TO YOU BY SNOWWOWL.COM A NON-COMMERCIAL NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL WEBSITE OPERATION HOMECOMING USA
February 26, 2005
Thirty years have passed since the end of the Vietnam War. During those three decades, the brave men and women who served in that conflict have never been given the recognition they deserve for their heroic sacrifices in service to our country. Now, the time for that recognition has come.
Welcome Home…America's Tribute to Vietnam Veterans will be the homecoming celebration they never received. This first-ever
national event will take place June 13-June 19, 2005 in Branson, Missouri. Including veterans, their families and friends, 100,000
participants from across the country are expected to attend. For Vietnam Veterans and their loved ones, and our nation, this celebration is profoundly important. By honoring those who answered their country's call during a difficult time in our nation's history, the legacy of duty, honor and country will be passed on to America's sons and daughters who will be called to serve in the future. It's an idea whose time has come.
Operation Homecoming USA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation established to organize and execute this grand scale week long event. We approached a broad spectrum of national and regional experts to provide oversight of this sensitive project. Noted patriots from every walk of American life are now actively involved.
