The Connecticut Air Guard and the New England Air Museum will be the sites of Connecticut’s Vietnam 50th Celebration. All are invited to attend Connecticut’s Vietnam 50th Celebration Weekend. Come recognize and honor New England’s Vietnam Veterans and by remembrance, embrace those who did not return. This three-day event will feature amazing vehicle and aircraft displays, helicopter rides in the 1D “Huey”, a USO dance and concert, and a complete, six aircraft rescue demonstration by “The Sky Soldiers” each day.
This event is designed to educate a new generation about the Vietnam War and the part it played in the lives of our friends, relatives and neighbors whose stories are the building blocks of American History. The Vietnam 50th is sponsored by the CCSU Veterans History Project Vietnam War Commemoration Committee. Collaborating partners are the New England Air Museum, the Connecticut National Guard, Bradley International Airport, the Connecticut Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Association of the United States Army (AUSA).
The Vietnam 50th Celebration weekend will take place on July 10th through 12th, 2015 on the grounds of New England Air Museum and the Connecticut Air National Guard in Windsor Locks, Connecticut.
