November 19 Meeting – Guest Speaker Kevin Rue talk on Versace Plaza, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, & Vietnam MIA

We had fantastic presentation by Colonel Kevin Rue, U.S. Army Retired on the Captain Rocky Versace Plaza and Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Alexandria.  The Memorial honors the service and supreme sacrifice of the 67 men from Alexandria who either died in Vietnam and the surrounding area during that war or remain Missing in Action (MIA). Col. Rue highlighted Captain Versace’s incredible Catholic faith.
