The public is invited to the 2022 celebration of National Medal of Honor Day and National Vietnam War Veterans Day, at 1 p.m., Friday, March 25, hosted by the Daniel D. Fernandez, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9676.
VFW Post 9676 will celebrate these two significant historical days at its post home, located at the entrance to Daniel D. Fernandez Memorial Park, 1201 N.M. 314. The VFW Post is named after local hero and Medal of Honor recipient, Daniel D. Fernandez, and a significant number of our members are Vietnam veterans, some whom knew Daniel personally.

The event is free and no registration is required. Refreshments will also be served.
