The Tet Reunion Is Open To All Military Regardless Of Branch Or Conflict

Anyone attending is encouraged to bring photos and memorabilia, regardless of era, service branch, or conflict. The Tet Reunion will be serving food, drinks, and desserts, plus sharing displays, memorabilia, and a USO-style show that will have you laughing and singing along.

Here's the history of the Vietnamese Tet Offensive: On January 31, in 1968, 70,000 North Vietnamese launched a fierce attack on more than 100 cities and towns in South Vietnam. The Vietcong called it the 'Tet Offensive'. They named it after their Vietnamese New Year holiday and the beginning of their spring season which the Vietnamese referred to as the Tet'.

However, the Tet Reunion is no longer just about the Vietnam War. Veterans from all branches of the military and all conflicts are invited to attend. This is a memorable family event, and everyone who attends is invited to partake in the food, drink, and celebration. Furthermore, it's a free event.
