Joliet Area Community Hospice to host Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration

Joliet Hospice will honor veterans on March 21

Joliet Area Community Hospice (JACH) will be celebrating and honoring Vietnam Era Veterans at their inaugural Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration to take place at American Legion Post 18, 15052 Archer Ave., Lockport, on Saturday evening, March 21, 2020.

Vietnam Veterans who may never have been appropriately welcomed home — who were never applauded and thanked for their service and sacrifice — will be celebrated and honored.

All Vietnam Era Veterans and their families are invited for this evening of dinner, speakers, live music, exciting raffles, and fun activities. Pre-registration is required by contacting Kristen Kolwelter at 815-740-4104.

JACH has been honored to care for thousands of veterans since our doors were opened in 1982. JACH now enhances that care with the Joliet Area Community Hospice We Honor Veterans Program. This comprehensive program focuses on respectfully celebrating veterans and providing care that recognizes the unique challenges that may exist in military families. JACH is committed to providing care for those who served with pride, honoring their lives and service to country, and offering the dignity they so richly deserve.

Sponsorships for the inaugural Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration are available at joliethospice.org under the Events tab or by calling 815-740-4104.
