The Unified Christian Men’s Chorus — comprised of men from Clinton, Fayette and Highland counties — gave its annual Veterans Day program in honor of all military and first responders at the Wilmington Church of Christ.
A crowd of over 300 people came to honor those who serve the country, and it was an amazing display of appreciation and patriotism.
This year’s program was designed to give special recognition to those in the military who were serving during the Vietnam era.
Three groups were given special appreciation: those who were in the military during the Vietnam era but were not directly involved in the conflict; those who were involved directly in the war somewhere in the Vietnam theater; and those from Clinton, Fayette and Highland counties who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.
The men who were in the military during the Vietnam War, as well as those who were directly involved in the war, were presented special commemorative hats designating their service.
The executive directors of the Clinton County Veterans Service Commission for each county made the presentations. The directors are Jeff Rollins, Clinton County; William Rheinscheld, Fayette County; and Tim Hazelwood, Highland County.
