Rosely Robinson will serve as keynote speaker at the annual Vietnam Veterans Day, set for 2 p.m. March 31 at the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park on South Little Creek Road in Dover.
Robinson is the founder of the Delaware chapter of A Hero’s Welcome Delaware and has served as its director since 2012.
Robinson has taken an active role in many other veteran related initiatives, including organizing the first motorcade in 2013 for the Wounded Warriors who participated in Operation SEAs the Day, which organizes and facilitate a beach week for wounded soldiers and their families as a means of showing appreciation for their service and sacrifice. The motorcade honors participants on the final days of their week. She continues to coordinate the motorcade each year.
She was recently named the Delaware coordinator for the POW Flag 50 State Tour from March 1 to 3 and coordinated 14 separate events in two and half days throughout the state.
Each event was designed to spread awareness of the 83,000 members of the military who remain unaccounted for since World War II. Robinson also works with other veterans organizations and is an advocate for the POW MIA Chair of Honor program.
