Members of the Taunton Area Vietnam Veterans Association will share a slideshow presentation at 2pm and memories of their experiences during the Vietnam War. They will also bring military memorabilia as well as items from their time in Vietnam, including a Montagnard crossbow and sword, shrapnel from a 122mm rocket, and a piece of a Skycrane helicopter. The Taunton Area Vietnam Veterans Association (TAVVA) will never let anyone forget the sacrifices made by those that served their country in Vietnam. This program is a wonderful way of remembering "those that gave some and those that gave all." TAVVA is a non-profit organization. Based in Taunton Massachusetts, it was officially founded in January of 1983 by five Vietnam Veterans and one Korean Veteran.
