Joliet hospice to host 'Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration'

On March 21, Joliet Area Community Hospice will celebrating and honor Vietnam-era veterans at its inaugural “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration.”

The celebration will take place at American Legion Post 18, 15052 Archer Ave. in Lockport.

Vietnam veterans who may never have been appropriately welcomed home – who were never applauded and thanked for their service and sacrifice – will be celebrated and honored.

All Vietnam-era veterans and their families are invited for this evening of dinner, speakers, live music, raffles and activities.

Advance registration is required by calling Kristen Kolwelter at 815-740-4104.

JACH has been honored to care for thousands of veterans since it opened its doors in 1982. JACH now enhances that care with the Joliet Area Community Hospice We Honor Veterans program.

This comprehensive program focuses on respectfully celebrating veterans and providing care that recognizes the unique challenges that may exist in military families.

Sponsorships for the inaugural “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration” are available.
