Letter to the editor: Vietnam vets welcome at Garrett open house

Friday, December 13, 2013 - 12:01 am

Calling all veterans — especially Vietnam veterans.

The Garrett American Legion Post 178 will have an open house at 6 p.m. Monday at 515 W. Fifth Ave., Garrett. The topic will be “Agent Orange” and the illnesses that are associated with it and the people who should be or should have been covered.

If you are a Vietnam veteran or your family member was a Vietnam veteran, please make time to attend. After a short presentation there will be time for some questions. The admission is free and you do not have to be a member.

Food will be available for purchase, and Gibby starts to serve food at 5:30 p.m.

Since it is an open house you will be able to purchase adult beverages. The weekly drawing will be at 8 p.m. Arrive early for good seats.

Post 178 is a nonsmoking post, but there is a covered smoking area on the deck. Doors will open at 3 p.m. Hope to see you there.
