HVAF of Indiana, Inc. joined 5-thousand people in Kokomo, Ind., for the 29th annual Howard County Vietnam Veterans Reunion on September 16-18, 2011. The three-day event featured several bands, speakers, and mini-reunions honoring veterans from all wars with the main focus on those who served during the Vietnam era.
At HVAF’s informational booth, staffers distributed handout’s and brochures to veterans and families. HVAF’s mission is to eliminate homelessness among veterans and families through prevention, education, supportive services, and advocacy.
“Each year the 22-acre field transforms into a mini-city of tents where thousands of veterans and their families come together,” says Misha Bennett MSW, case manager at HVAF. “It’s a chance for us to share with others what we do at HVAF of Indiana, Inc. as well as answer any questions.”
