The VBC and the Pittsburgh’s Heinz History Center are holding a special Vietnam Veterans Day Event on March 29, 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

The event will be held in-person at the Heinz History Center and will also be available online on Facebook and YouTube

This free Vietnam Veterans Day event will honor and recognize all veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, regardless of duty location.

Non-Veterans are especially welcome to attend and pay tribute to our Vietnam Veterans, hear their stories of service, and thank them for blazing the trail for every serviceman and woman who came after them.

The event will feature refreshments, a social hour, and then a program with special guests, stories, and a pinning ceremony.

Every Vietnam Veteran registered for this event will receive a gift bag as a token of our gratitude for your service.

We also want to recognize Red Cross Volunteers and Donut Dollies who served with the U.S. Armed Forces between 1955-1975. They deserved to be honored with a Welcome Home Bag also!

For those who will be joining us virtually, the gift bag will be shipped to the home address provided.

Come to our live, in-person breakfast in Beaver, PA. We’ll have 6th grade students from a nearby elementary school in attendance, asking the veterans questions and getting an education from those who’ve served from WWII to the present.

These are some of the people you’ll meet and the stories you’ll hear!

We meet at Seven Oaks Country Club (132 Lisbon Rd, Beaver, 15009). You’ll walk in, pick up your name badge, pay $15 if you plan to eat (no cost for those who don’t), and meet others who are there to hear and share the stories. Breakfast is served at 8:30am. At 9:00am, we start the program. For the next 90 minutes, we circulate the room with the microphone and have veterans share a slice of their service experience. You never know what you’re going to hear, and there’s always new people with new memories to offer.

RSVP by calling 412-623-9029 or emailing betty@veteransbreakfastclub.org. Please make sure to RSVP for events at least two days in advance. We understand that your schedule can change quickly, but advance notice of attendance always helps us and our venues prepare the program. Thank you!
