“Vietnam War 50th Commemoration A Time To Honor" books are now available to pick up.

If you are a Vietnam veteran who served during the Vietnam Conflict, bring a copy of your DD214 to my office to receive your FREE book.

There are a limited number of books that I have received so this will be a first come first served basis.  

My office is located on 1st floor in the Courthouse (‘Zoning’ is printed above the door). You may call the office prior to arrival to check on availability, or to arrange pick up or delivery of your book by someone other than yourself.
