We are asking for your help to communicate and promote this Special Event for all Veterans.

Thanks to many people, this event was a great success in 2018. We want many more people to experience

Uncle Sam's Memorial Tribute Display in 2019.


Uncle Sam's mission is to:

1)Acknowledge, Honor and Remember all Veterans,

2) To Teach that Freedom is not Free

3) To say Thank You For Serving Our Country!!


Why:This is part of Uncle Sam's Veterans Outreach to Acknowledge, Honor and Remember all Veterans as we highlight the Vietnam Era Veterans.

Every 65 minutes we have a veteran to commit suicide and almost 70% are 50 years and older!


Because: An ounce of prevention is worth a Pound of Cure! It can be a matter of Life and Death!

We are losing more than 390 (2016 est and 500 2018 est) Vietnam Era veterans every day.
