The Vietnam War Era Last Man Club of St. Peter will present a program for Veterans and community members on March 29, 2024, beginning at 5 p.m. in the gymnasium of the St. Peter Community Center in observance of National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day was approved by Congress and by Presidential Proclamation for March 29, 2017, and every year thereafter. The program will include music selections by the Minnesota Over 60 Band, a welcome from St. Peter Mayor Shanon Nowell, and a keynote address by St. Peter native John Ahlstrom, Class of ’64, a Vietnam Veteran serving in U. S. Army Intelligence.

The Last Man Club will present a wreath during the program honoring the seven St. Peter Veterans, and all Veterans, who lost their life fighting in the Vietnam War. Immediately after the program, the wreath will be placed at the St. Peter Veterans Memorial in Minnesota Square Park in St. Peter.

Following the program, American Legion William R. Witty Post #37 will host a free-will offering meal and continued comradeship in recognition of National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

The public is invited to participate in all of the observance activities.
