Vietnam Veterans of America
To Host "Broadway To Baghdad" Event in New York City


(Washington, D.C. ) – Vietnam Veterans of America will host “Broadway to Baghdad,” a star-studded special event on Tuesday, October 17, in New York City. The two-part event, which will honor America’s fightingmen and women, includes the “Broadway to Baghdad” USO-type show from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the HBO Theater and an 8 o’clock performance of the new Twyla Tharp musical, “The Times They Are A-Changin’” at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

“Vietnam Veterans of America’s motto is ‘Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another,’” said VVA President John Rowan “This event is one of many VVA efforts to honor the newest generation of American veterans and to reach out to them, with the benefit of our experience, to help them adjust to life back home. We certainly hope that veterans and others who support veterans will come out on October 17th for this worthwhile cause.”

Special sponsorship packages, including opportunities to help active-duty service members attend the events, are available. To find out more, contact Pat Gualtieri at 877-727-2333 or go to www.vva.org
