A “Walk and Learn” event will allow attendees to walk around the track, stopping at various tent areas along their journey, to learn different facts about the Vietnam War and our local veterans’ organizations. A walking stick is available for purchase upon registration, and stickers will be issued for it at each learning stop. This event is ideal for children, young adults, veterans and anyone else wishing to participate and learn more. Arrive early: “Walk and Learn” is first come, first served, from 8 AM until 10:30 AM.
