WILDWOOD— Michael P. Callahan Memorial Chapter 955 Vietnam Veterans of America will be hosting the fifth annual 5K and mile-long walk on Saturday July 4. The event will start in front of the Wall on Ocean and Burk avenues. Registration starts at 7:30 am and the race starts at 9 a.m.
WILDWOOD– In the past 4 years, the Wildwoods 5K Beach n’ Boardwalk Patriotic 5K Run has raised more than $30,000 for the maintenance and upkeep of the Wildwoods Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.
It is interesting to note as the July 4 approaches that patriotism has often been inspired by music. Men and women have died on battlefields while the bands played on nearby.
