As part of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, this program will honor veterans and their families who served during the Vietnam War period and will include a Vietnam Veteran’s lapel pin presentation. Program speakers include City of Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness; Commander El Ahlwardt; U.S. Navy Retired; Kyle Fisher, American Legion 470 Commander; and Hospital Corpsman Second Class George Stavropoulos, U.S. Navy. Music will be provided by the White River Brass Troupe.
As part of an ongoing initiative by the City of Fishers in partnership with the Fishers Parks Foundation, engraved pavers are available for purchase and installation at Liberty Plaza in honor of a service member.
