The 38threunion of Riverina Vietnam Veterans will be held in Wagga over the weekened of November 6-8.

Chairman of the organising committee, David Gardiner, said it was expected 150 veterans plus partners would attend the reunion, to be held 50 years since ground troops landed in Vietnam and 40 years since all deployment ceased.

“The reunion is considered the oldest continuous reunion of Vietnam veterans in Australia, having originated in Leeton 38 years ago,” Mr Gardiner said.

“The reunion is held only in Riverina towns and attracts veterans from all over Australia.”

Mr Gardiner said, so far, veterans from all states have expressed interest in attending the event.

He said reunions were important in the lives of ex-service men and women.
