Healing Heroes hosts Vietnam Veterans Tribute

The Healing Heroes of the Lowcountry Fund is proud to host the inaugural Vietnam Veterans Celebration on August 8, 2015 at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park in downtown Beaufort in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. This event seeks to honor our nation’s Vietnam War Veterans of all branches of the military for their service and sacrifices to our country during a difficult era in our history.

The event will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. The Keynote Speaker is Maj. Gen. Robert E. Livingston, Jr., U.S. Army Retired. Following his remarks, The Parris Island Marine Band, the Parris Island Color Guard along with the Sweetgrass Angels, Brad Smith & Keith Alston, Katie McAllister, and City Councilman Mike McFee will perform. Katie McAllister says, “I am particularly honored to be singing the National Anthem, and a couple other patriotic songs, with the Marine Corps Band, as my father was a Vietnam Vet, Air Force Colonel, fighter pilot, and hero to many, especially me.”

Donnie Beer, HHLF Chairman remarked, “Some ask ‘why do this now?’  Vietnam was a long time ago and best forgotten. To those that served and to the families who lost a loved one it happened yesterday. This is for them.”
