Soldiers returning home from World War II, or the Korean War, were welcomed back as heroes. This was not the case when our soldiers returned home from Vietnam. Some Vietnam Veterans were greeted with anger or hostility. Others noticed there was no reaction at all. Many shared that civilians seemed uncomfortable around them, and did not want to hear about their wartime experiences.
HCP’s Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans event honors the Veterans in our care as well as all of the Veterans in our community. This program is just one way HCP recognizes the unique needs of Veterans, thanks them for their service to our country, and provides a respectful Welcome Home.
Hospice of Central PA (HCP) is looking for knowledgeable veterans who can passionately and effectively share their subject matter expertise, and real life experiences, with attendees at the Welcome Home event on Sunday November 7, 2021.
