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, October 5, 2022 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.
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.
Maj. Gen.

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