We will also give honor to three servicemen that will be added to the memorial wall, Veterans and casualties of the Vietnam War. The 'Huey' first used in Vietnam, will also be on display.

2018 recognizes the 100th anniversary of the First World War, 1918, and the 50th Anniversary of the height of the Vietnam War, 1968. Both dates recognize the supreme sacrifice of American veterans who served and sacrificed to protect and defend American freedoms and ideals.Rock on Trucks will be at this event with their Brand New POW Tribute Truck".
