Veterans Gather to Share War Stories and Memories in Abilene
The Abilene Grunts Association and Texas Veterans Chapter One will host their 33rd Annual 'TET Reunion' at the Taylor County Fairgrounds in the Display Building at 1700 Texas Highway 36 Abilene. The reunion is where Veterans and their families gather to share old memories and stories of their years in the military.
Anyone who attends is encouraged to bring photo's and memorabilia, no matter the era, service branch or conflict. The '33rd Annual TET Reunion' will have food, drinks, displays, memorabilia and a 'USO' style show.
For a little history: On January 31, 1968, 70,000 North Vietnamese launched a fierce attack on more than 100 cities and towns in South Vietnam. The Vietcong called it the 'Tet Offensive', after their Vietnamese new year holiday called Tet.
However the 'Tet Reunion' is no longer just about the Vietnam war, all Veterans from any conflict and their families are invited to attend and partake and it's all free to them.
The reunion is Saturday, February 1st, 2020. Doors open at 12 PM. Attendees needing special accommodations can call in advance. Contact David Vargo at 325-690-0750 or Donna Stone at 325-672-4003.
The TET Reunion is funded by donations only and your generous donations are graciously appreciated.
