    25 Mar 2017 - March at Wildwood Vietnam Wall - Agent Orange - Veterans from Post 184, American Legion and Chapter 955, Vietnam Veterans of America, Wildwood, plan to host a rally March 25 at the Wildwood Vietnam Memorial Wall at 11 a.m.   Those organizations, joined by veterans and their families and extended families, bring awareness of the effects of toxic exposure to Agent Orange. That defoliant, widely used in the Vietnam War, has affected millions of veterans and is being investigated to have an adverse effect on the children and grandchildren of those veterans.  Also, the rally will focus on the health care that veterans are receiving from the Veterans Administration (VA) in Cape May County.  According to a release, veterans are often required to make the trip to Wilmington Del. or Philadelphia to get health care, often for just a 10-minute appointment.  The rally begins at the Wildwoods Vietnam Memorial Wall, Burk and Ocean avenues.  After some brief speeches, a motorcade will proceed to milepost 17 on the Garden State Parkway (Ocean View Rest Stop) where the second part of the rally will occur.  It is expected that the group will arrive there about 12:15 to 1 p.m. At that location, there is ample, safe off-highway parking.  The rally at that location will be held at the veterans memorial at the south end of the plaza. The event is being organized by Bill Davenport, president Chapter 955, Vietnam Veterans of America, and Harry Weimar, commander Post 184, American Legion. - (click on event title for more info) ...

    25 Mar 2017 - Local Hero Reception & An Evening with the Medal of Honor - The Medal of Honor represents the service and sacrifice of all who have worn our nation's uniform and the character traits of: courage, citizenship, commitment, sacrifice, integrity, and patriotism. These same character traits distinguish our recipients for the Local Hero Award. The Local Hero Reception will be highlighted by a multi-media program which fosters that distinguished legacy through the stories of two very unique recipients, World War II signalman Douglas A. Munro, United States Coast Guard and Vietnam War hero, Richard Etchberger, the Air Force’s most recent Medal of Honor recipient. Gary Williams and Cory Etchberger, Academic Directors for the Medal of Honor Legacy Program at Freedoms Foundation will present this dynamic event. Following “An Evening with the Medal of Honor”, the 2017 Local Hero Award will be presented to our two recipients: Chief Mark E. Talbot, Sr. has spearheaded the effort to transform the Norristown Police Department into a more focused and community oriented agency which has resulted in a substantial reduction of both Part 1 offences and violent crime. He has led the way in building trust between the local community and the police, creating an innovative and progressive policing method worthy of emulation. Richard Williams III, a student at Motivation (Magnet) High School, put his personal safety on the line when he defended his Personal Finance teacher in the midst of a fight on school grounds, resulting in five breaks to his jawbone and other injuries. The teacher was attempting to diffuse tensions between two neighboring schools, but the situation quickly escalated and focused on the teacher. Ricky and classmates selflessly and courageously stepped in and protected the teacher. - (click on event title for more info) ...
