Kent County Chapter 850, Vietnam Veterans of America, will host its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at FOP Lodge 3, 1584 Kitts Hummock Road, Dover.
Chapter 850 is active in the community and includes more than 210 members and 35 associate members.
Beginning in 2007, it raised private funds to build the Kent County Memorial Park on South Little Creek Road, Dover, memorializing Kent Countians lost in Vietnam, Korea and the Middle East. The site is also home to a Gold Star Mother and Family Memorial, a Huey “Dustoff” helicopter, a War Dog memorial and a POW/MIA Chair of Honor.
The chapter conducts three ceremonies there each year: Vietnam Veterans Day in March; Memorial Day in May; and Veterans Day in November.
Meetings are open to honorably discharged Vietnam or Vietnam-era veterans, whether chapter members or not.
