Salute to Patriotism Gala


Supporting the  New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation

Please join us for our 23rd Annual Salute to Patriotism Gala on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club.

This year we commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the groundbreaking of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial by honoring the contributions of UTCA and Heavy and General Construction Laborers’ Local 472 that made the site possible.

Our Annual Gala provides support for the care of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial. It also supports the Vietnam Era Museum and its educational programs, outreach, ceremonies, research initiatives and exhibitions. As the only site of its kind in the country, your support ensures that the legacies and lessons of the Vietnam Era will continue to be taught to future generations.
