2016 Vietnam Veterans Get-Together

After 25 years of dedicated hard work to keep the comradeship of US veterans who served in Vietnam together, the Boonville crew decided to pass the torch and we at VFW Post 369, were the lucky ones to have the opportunity to host this great event.

We have a 10 acre facility with lots of room for anyone who wishes to bring their fully self contained camper or similar shelters for that weekend.

On Friday evening June 17 we are having our annual watch fire, so if you want to come early, bring your old flags and you can help us retire them.

Saturday, June 18th at noon the get-together starts, we will maintain the same food and beverage menu as in the past. The Chinese raffles will be the same also.

Ken Bundy and his crew are coming down from Boonville to assist with the ceremonies for it is the most important part of the event.
