The Beaufort VA Outpatient Clinic recently honored local Vietnam Veterans at a luncheon hosted by Piggly Wiggly which is owned by Lou Sherman. Nearly 50 Vietnam Veterans who had gathered at the AMVETS facility as part of the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War attended the luncheon. The AMVETS also provided the drinks and paper products for this event. It was a great opportunity to recognize our local Vietnam Veterans and thank them for their service to our country.
Mr. Sherman said, “This is just the first of several quarterly luncheons that Piggly Wiggly will host, each designed to honor another group within our military. What these service men and women give to all of us is so very important and I am delighted that Piggly Wiggly can be a small part of our collective thank-you.”
