An archdiocesan senior support agency is teaming up with a U.S. Senator’s office to honor veterans of the Vietnam War era.

Catholic Housing and Community Services (CHCS), in conjunction with the office of U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, will host a pinning ceremony honoring Vietnam-era veterans with a 50th-anniversary commemorative lapel pin.

The ceremony will take place Wednesday, June 29 at 11 a.m. in the Wellness Center of St. John Neumann Place II (SJNPII) located at 2627 Mifflin Street, Philadelphia, PA 19145.

The site is one of several affordable senior living complexes operated by CHCS as part of its continuum of care to older adults throughout the five-county archdiocesan area.

U.S. veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are invited to receive an honorary pin commemorating the 50th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.

Veterans’ family members and veterans from all periods of service are also invited to attend the ceremony.
