NEVCA | General Membership meeting
Thursday evening, November 16th at 7:30pm
Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry St SE Vienna VA 22180
All Vienna residents are welcome to attend.
Our featured speaker will be NEVCA member Dr. Robert Leggett, to discuss his 2017 publication “U.S. Coast Guard Academy Class of 1963 Goes to War — A Collection of Stories Involving Combat, Tragedy, and Lasting Memories.”
The publication chronicles the little-known story of the role played by the U.S. Coast Guard during Vietnam, specifically “Operation Market Time,” a mission to prevent North Vietnam from infiltrating arms and other war materiel into South Vietnam by sea.
Thirty four members of the Class of 1963 served on 82-foot cutters, fourteen were awarded Bronze Stars and three earned Silver Stars for their wartime duty. The book is dedicated to Lt. (j.g.) David Brostrom, who was killed in the war.
