On Friday, March 29, which is the National Vietnam War Veterans Day, these local groups will be hosting a special meal at the Devils Lake VFW located at 314 3rd Ave. NE.

There will be a choice of dishes for those keeping Lent, either spaghetti with meat sauce or fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp plus garlic toast. This meal is free to all Vietnam Era Veterans, you do not have to be a member of any of the sponsoring organizations to attend. Veteran’s significant others will also dine for free and all others will be asked to pay a free will offering to help cover the cost of the meal.
