Color Guard presentation by the Vietnam Veterans of America, Nassau County, Ch. 82 

Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) is the only congressionally chartered national veterans’ service organization dedicated to serving veterans of the Vietnam War and their families. Festival attendees are invited to witness a special salute to our heroes as local VVA chapter leads a presentation of colors to open the event. 

Sign the Giant Thank You Card for our Veterans

Leave a kind word of appreciation on the giant thank you card. We hope to gather enough thoughtful sentiments to make any veteran who sees it feel the love and appreciation for their service to our country. The giant card will stay on display at the venue for a limited time.
