Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs and CCSU Veterans History Project to hold 'welcome home'

The Department of Veterans Affairs and Central Connecticut State University Veterans History Project are organizing an official “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans” event at 7 p.m. March 31 at the Governor William A. O’Neill Armory in Hartford.
Headlining the event will be the USO Liberty Bells, who will perform patriotic and Vietnam era songs. In addition to entertainment and food, it will prove to be a great evening for sharing stories, meeting other veterans and celebrating the men and women who served.
Committee members are raising private funds so that veterans will receive a free ticket for the event and tickets for their guests and supporters will each be $10.
Event information is available at For tickets or donations, contact Eileen Hurst at 860-832-2976 or
