Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration

Gilchrist’s Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day celebration honors the veterans in our care as well as all of the veterans in our community, and coincides with Maryland’s Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day, signed into law by Governor Larry Hogan in 2015. This celebration is one of the many ways Gilchrist recognizes the unique needs of veterans and thanks them for their sacrifice and service to our country. We are proud to honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Learn more about Gilchrist’s We Honor Veterans program or call our veterans coordinator at 443.849.8306.

Gilchrist’s Virtual Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration will be held on Sunday, March 28, 2021, at 3pm. We are privileged to host this special virtual celebration of service to honor and thank the men and women in our community who served during the Vietnam War. Registration is required.
