In 2010 we all gathered to honor veterans from the Korean War. In 2014 it is time to honor the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam War era, commonly defined as the period from 1961 to 1975. The event on Saturday, October 4, will begin at 3 p.m. with a rededication of the Veterans Monument in Veterans Park, adjacent to the Pine Knoll Shores town hall. This event is open to all Carteret County Vietnam-era veterans and all citizens of Pine Knoll Shores. The rededication will last about an hour. Later that day, at 5:30 p.m., we will have a dinner at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast in Pine Knoll Shores for all past and present residents of Pine Knoll Shores who are Vietnam-era veterans and their families.
