VIETNAM VETS thought you might be interested in this.  I’ve been watching the Public Broadcasting series about Vietnam, but hadn’t realized KLRU’s Decibel Monday night and Tuesday’s “Austin Revealed” telecast included stuff from our Austin Vietnam Vets. Judy Maggio was Channel 3’s news anchor some years ago, and after she dropped out of sight, I hadn’t realized she had just gone to an editorial position with Public Broadcasting. She writes:

 

I wanted to touch base with you because you are a part of several of our Vietnam productions airing in Sept.  I am passing along the air dates on KLRU for both the documentary: Austin Revealed and the ATX Together Town Hall that we recorded in May. (There's a third special that Don is in but I'm including that date as well. Don - I used a few soundbites from you on a story we did on PTSD).

 

Decibel # 103 "Vietnam Special" ( news special)

9/18 at 8:30 pm, 9/24 at 5 pm, 9/26 at 9:30 pm

Austin Revealed # 103 ( documentary)

9/19 at 9:00 pm, 9/24 at 6 pm, 9/25 at 9 pm

ATX Together: Lessons from Vietnam ( town hall)

9/20 at 9 pm, 9/22 at 9:30 pm, 9/24 at 5:30 pm

 

Thanks so much and I look forward to see y'all on Sept. 12th for the premiere.

Best-

Judy

Texas Capital Chapter 1919, Military Order of the Purple Heart, takes the lead with projects, in addition to our permanent Purple Santa Program, that are supportive of America’s currently deployed military, veterans of all wars, veterans’ families, and community youth sports; and acts in concert with other organizations that share these worthy objectives.  Projects are limited in scope only by the resources available and donations are always welcome.  Chapter 1919 pledges to apply 100 percent of contributions received to the project designated. We believe that these projects support the needs of veterans and provide maximum use of your support. Review the overview provided for our current initiatives and please support them.

Freedom Flyers has two World War II war-birds in its fleet. They are the P51-Mustang and the Navy AT-6. These

war-birds are flown at air show and aviation events around the country and provides World War II veterans with a once in a lifetime opportunity to fly in these legendary aircraft. MOPH Chapter 1919 identifies WWII veterans for these local flights.

Wheelers for the Wounded
Wheelers for the Wounded Texas is a wonderful non-profit organization that Chapter 1919 partners with to provide wounded warriors access to their off-road adventures. Wheelers also provides toys for the hundreds of children attending the Purple Santa Christmas program at Ft. Hood sponsored jointly by the Wheelers and Chapter 1919.
