I just received the Governor of Virginia’s proclamation of Irish American Heritage Month.
In the same email I also received a proclamation of Viet Nam Veterans Day. Brothers who were on our rolls in 2009-2010 will recall this was a Virginia AOH Veterans Affairs initiative. Former delegate Ed Scott (30th district/Orange County) was instrumental in getting this through the House of Delegates and approved by the state senate. I was presented with a copy of the original proclamation which read “Welcome Home Viet Nam Veterans Day”.
