The American-Vietnamese War Memorial Alliance will put up allied flags at the Auburn Vietnam Memorial in Les Gove Park early Saturday morning in honor of Veterans Day weekend.
The alliance will set up a table at the memorial from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to greet visitors and hand out pins to Vietnam veterans and family.
Auburn’s Vietnamese-American War Memorial Alliance project began more than 11 years ago to honor the sacrifices of Americans and Vietnamese soldiers. The project’s vision grew from a local veteran’s effort to honor all the other allied forces and the thousands of Canadian volunteers who joined the U.S. military to support South Vietnam, making Auburn’s memorial unique.
The park is at 910 Ninth St. SE, Auburn.
