Veterans to hold Xmas Eve vigil at Del. memorial

WILMINGTON, Del. - December 14, 2010

The emotional tribute at the memorial in Wilmington has been held by the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 83 for the past 25 years.

Tom Daws, president of the chapter, says the 6:30 p.m. vigil is open to the public and will include the singing of Christmas carols.

The candlelight vigil initially paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the Vietnam War, but now also draws relatives of those lost or serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
