HARRISBURG – Local veterans of the Vietnam War-era will be honored by the offices of state Rep. Aaron Bernstine (R-Beaver/Butler/Lawrence), U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Slippery Rock Mayor Jondavid Longo during a recognition ceremony at Slippery Rock Volunteer Fire Hall, located at 162 Elm St. on Thursday, March 26, at 10 a.m.
“The bravery shown in Southeast Asia is unsurpassed in American history,” said Bernstine. “This ceremony provides me and the community the opportunity to thank them for their efforts and commitment in defending America.”
The event will include a ceremonial pinning and citation presentation. Living United States veterans who served on active duty in the Armed Forces at any time during the period of Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive a lapel pin.
Eligible veterans are asked to email Toomey’s Pittsburgh office at Colton_Fedell@toomey.senate.gov
“I encourage all eligible veterans in the area to register to attend this worthwhile ceremony,” said Bernstine.
