24TH ANNUAL SALUTE TO PATRIOTISM GALA


Supporting the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation

Please join us for our 24th Annual Salute to Patriotism Gala on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club.

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 of the Foundation and our Veterans ensures that the legacies and lessons of the Vietnam Era will continue to be taught to future generations.


2020 Honorees

Johnson & Johnson Head of Military & Veterans Affairs John Perez

For more than 120 years, Johnson & Johnson has been committed to supporting the heroes in our community: the military service members, the families that welcome them home, and the health professionals who provide care. Through the power of their presence and partnerships around the world, Johnson & Johnson is committed to keeping our heroes healthy and enabling them to bring their unique experiences and strengths home to their communities and is a Healthcare Partner of the USO.

Johnson & Johnson was the largest provider of medical supplies during the Vietnam War.


Brigadier General Sharon R. Bannister

Brigadier General Bannister organizes, trains, equips and sustains combat-ready medical forces for rapid deployment and employment. She is responsible to the ACC Commander for the healthcare of 81,000 active duty and civilian personnel located at 11 bases and more than 300 operating locations worldwide, as
well as a comprehensive, community-based health care system.

In addition to her impressive resume, Gen. Bannister has a strong personal connection with the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation – her father, Stephen Rusch, was killed in action in Vietnam and is remembered on the March 7th panel of our Memorial.
