LZ Maryland Vietnam Veterans Event, June 18-19, Timonium Fairgrounds:
LZ Maryland is a weekend event that will honor Vietnam veterans as they gather together with family, friends, and a grateful public. “LZ” is for “landing zone,” a place of safety. It’s fitting that we salute Maryland’s Vietnam-era veterans here where their roots are planted. Those in conflict knew that an LZ was a safe, clear, and ready place for helicopters to land without harm. Hosted by Maryland Public Television, AARP Maryland needs volunteers to commit to two-hour blocks of time (if you would like to do more we could accommodate your request) and staff our table to talk to veterans, their families and guest about AARP and give out small gifts with information on AARP. If interested, email John Henkel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
