Forward Assist Veterans in The USA (Part Six)
During the visit and whilst at the Mountain Harbour Resort on Lake Ouachita we were introduced to members of the Vietnam Veterans Organisation of Hot Springs. Past President Mike Kidder and 'Skyman' Thrasher kindly organised a table at a local Blues Club for the UK veterans where a great time was had by all and each veteran was gifted with their organisational patch. This unexpected gesture deeply moved many of the veterans within the group and a close emotional bond was formed with this branch of the Vietnam Veterans Organisation. On behalf of Forward Assist we thank you for your service and the kindness shown to our group during our stay in your area.... you are all truly a League of Gentleman.
