NTC and Fort Irwin to host fourth annual event recognizing Vietnam era Veterans

The largest annual, outreach event that the National Training Center and Fort Irwin hosts returns to this military installation for its fourth installment.

The 2013 Vietnam era Veterans event “We Will Not Forget” is scheduled for April 10. The days’ events will begin at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Barstow for attendees participating in the motorcycle procession. After morning colors are presented, the MCLB Commander Col. Michael Scalise will provide remarks. A motorcycle procession will then leave the base and enter Fort Irwin, where well-wishers cheer on Veterans as they make their way to the parade field, here. The ceremony here is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m.

For Veterans driving directly to Fort Irwin, parking will be located at the Exchange lot; shuttles will be provided to the parade field.

The NTC and Fort Irwin invites Vietnam era Veterans and their family members to attend this special occasion. Registration is available at the Fort Irwin Web site www.irwin.army.mil or by calling (760) 380-7532.

The NTC and Fort Irwin commander, Brig. Gen. Ted Martin, will introduce the ceremony. This year’s guest speaker will be Tom Lewis, who is a business owner in Barstow. He served in the Marines for six years with two of those years in Vietnam (1960-62) in an advisor role.

“I am not a speech writer,” wrote Lewis in a letter to Darrell Kemp, directorate of Human Resources, here. “[I am] a very dedicated and patriotic Marine that has tried to make a difference. I am highly honored for the once in a lifetime opportunity to speak before such a special group of brothers and sisters.”

A complimentary lunch will be provided to Veterans and their guests at 12:30 p.m.
