Daughters present pin, brochure to spouse of Vietnam veteran

Posted

Patricia Aliki, Sun City Agua Fria National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter Chaplain, presented a Deceased Vietnam Veterans Surviving Spouse lapel pin and brochure, which explains the meaning of the symbols on the pin, to Sun City resident Gail DeToy. 

Ms. DeToy husband, Sgt. Daniel DeToy, served in the United States Army between 1967-1971. He recently died due to health problems from exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam.

By presenting surviving spouses to Vietnam War era veterans who passed away between Nov. 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, the 50th Commemoration Program is recognizing and honoring the deceased veteran for their service, sacrifices and commitment to the preservation of America’s freedom. The program is sponsored by the Department of Defense and will continue through 2025. 

The year 2025 will be the 50th anniversary of the ending of the Vietnam War on May 15, 1975. 

Any veteran who served Nov. 1, 1955 through May 15, 1975 also qualifies for being presented with a special veteran lapel pin. Clubs and organizations are invited to join the Commemoration Partners Program whose objective is to reach as many of the veterans across the country as possible.
