Our chapter will meet on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 6 pm at Lititz VFW Post 1463 located at 14 N. Spruce St. in Lititz, Pa.  The meeting will be held on the lower level of the building and the entrance is adjacent to the parking lot on the north side of the building.  Membership is open to anyone who ever served with or was attached to the 1st Cavalry Division and is a member of the 1st Cavalry Division Association or is a Gold Star Family member.  Members will be discussing the upcoming Community Days at the airport program at the Lancaster Airport and the Wreaths Across America project among other items.

The James Unruh, Central Pennsylvania Chapter, is proud to continue its support of the Wreaths Across America project efforts to place a wreath on every Veterans grave at Christmas time. We currently support efforts at the Fort Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. We are also looking into adopting a couple of smaller cemeteries in the Lancaster County area. If you would like to support our efforts, please go to:

<www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/PA0412>.  Wreaths are $15.00 each and can be donated in “Memory of” or in “Honor of” any Veteran you may know.

A couple of our members will be travelling back to Vietnam in June of this year, after a 50+ year hiatus. Seventeen Vietnam Vets will be making the trip, sponsored by a local teacher who was evacuated from Vietnam as a 5-year-old child in 1975.  Her story is amazing, but too long to publish here.  She does love her Vietnam Vets.  Several family members will accompany us on the trip, as well as a local news and film crew to document our trip.
