Kent County Chapter 850, Vietnam Veterans of America, will hold its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. July 20 at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3, 1584 Kitts Hummock Road, Dover.
Vietnam-era veterans are encouraged to attend regardless of membership. The chapter is active with about 200 members and 35 associate members who support the chapter's community outreach and activities.
The chapter built the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park on South Little Creek Road, Dover, which includes memorials to Kent Countians lost in Vietnam; Korea; the Middle East; a Gold Star Mother and Families Memorial; a War Dog memorial; and a POW/MIA Chair of Honor. The geocached site also contains a UH-1 Huey medevac helicopter on an 18-foot stand with a cockpit that lights up at night. The site was primarily funded by the sale of named bricks, which are still available.
