On Saturday at 4:00 PM there will be a POW/MIA ceremony in front of the Hilton with many invited guests. The names of the Pennsylvanian’s who are still listed as missing in action from the Vietnam War will be read. The National Quilt of tears will be on display in the Hilton and Pennsylvania will present 3 more panels listing over 90 veterans who have died from Agent Orange related illnesses. There will be the East Coast premier of a new movie from Arrow Head Films, “An Ocean Away”, describing the discovery and return of the remains of a U.S. Marine listed as missing in action for over 38 years. The weekend will be dedicated to VVA 542 Chapter member U.S. Navy Capt. Ed Davis who was a POW for over 7 years in North Vietnam.

Harrisburg’s Holiday Parade. Once again VVA 542 has been tasked by the Mayor with organizing the 1st division of the Parade which will consist of Active duty units back from Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as many Veterans organizations. Last years parade started with a fly over of 4 UH-60 BlackHawk helicopters and we plan an even better start this year.
