Who’s Invited?





  • Everyone is welcome at the Heroes Honor Festival. This is a public tribute of honor.




 

Why is this happening now?





  • 50 years ago our Vietnam veterans were rejected by society when they came home.




  • Despite their mistreatment, Vietnam veterans rose up to guard the welcome home of our soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan at a time when military funerals were once again being protested.




  • The Heroes Honor Festival is a grand display of American appreciation from 9/11 era veterans and citizens to Vietnam veterans for how Vietnam veterans defended the honor of our military.




  • According to the VA, over 500 Vietnam veterans pass away each day. Our time to honor them is quickly fading away. We need to do this now.




 

What is the cost?





  • Vietnam veterans and spouses are free to attend thanks to generous donors.




  • Active military, other veterans and spouses are 50% off.




  • General admission starts at $79.
