I have been working for some time now on a comprehensive list of Vietnam Veterans who have either enlisted in the South Gippsland region or who have lived in this area for some time.
Along with Richard Lester, I have put together a list of approx. 150 names.
Quite a few years ago, the South Gippsland Shire Council committed to providing an Honour Board in the front foyer of the Memorial Hall in Leongatha to honour those who had served from this area.
The area, in those days, included Wonthaggi, Foster, Wooryl, South Gippsland and Korumburra Shires.
If you are a Vietnam Veteran or know of someone who should be on this Honour Roll, please contact me with the details so that it can be included for our unveiling on Vietnam Veteran’s Day in August.
I would appreciate your assistance in completing a comprehensive record of our Vietnam Veterans.
Contact details are Maxine Kiel, email maxinekiel@hotmail.com, 0429 682 465.
