Preview to Patriots Point’s Memorial Day program

Patriots Point’s Memorial Day program will take place on 31 May at 9 AM in our Vietnam Support Base. Admission and parking fees will be waived until 9:30 AM.

Our guest speaker will be Colonel Myron Harrington, USMC (Retired), who is a Vietnam veteran and was present at the incredible fight for Hue City, Republic of South Vietnam, during the Tet offensive.  He received the Navy Cross (second only to the Medal of Honor) for his actions at Hue City in 1968.

Come out to honor our American dead from all our wars.
