A special Vietnam Memorial Dedication Ceremony was held at Mulberry Park in Shallotte, NC on April 29. Our Chapter planted a Flowering Cherry Tree to honor the ten Brunswick County soldiers who lost their lives in the Vietnam War, and unveiled a stone marker engraved with names of the soldiers and the DAR Insignia.
