The Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 126, who are the guardians of the New York City Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the force behind the Growing NYC Veterans Day Parade, invited the Gathering of Eagles to their Christmas Party on Friday night.

The entire second floor of the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guard and Airmans Club was reserved for the festivities.

It was a great crowd, lots of food and spirits and several ways to support our troops and wounded warriors. We came prepared with boxes of Christmas cards already prepared for the troops, and eagerly took part in signing the large sign to be presented to the wounded warriors at Walter Reed.

Joe Graham, the president of Chapter 126, was a gracious and jovial host, and it was good to see many old friends and acquaintances again.
