VIETNAM Veterans Association will sell badges at three stalls in Horsham for the association’s badge week. 

Vietnam Veterans Association Wimmera sub-branch honorary treasurer Barry McClure said there would be stalls at Bunnings, Aldi and the Horsham Plaza from Monday to Wednesday from 10am to 2pm.

“All the money we raise from the badges and pens sold will be donated to Vietnam veterans’ welfare,” he said. 

Mr McClure said supporting veterans was important. 

“It has been over 50 years since Vietnam and we have people with problems, and it’s our responsibility to support them,” he said.

“Organising badge stalls and services reminds us of our history and teaches the community to not repeat it.”
