On September 11, 2011, and event was held at the China Garden restaurant in Rosslyn, VA, just outside Washington D.C., by the Vietnamese American Armed Forces Association (VAAFA) to honor their Fallen Heroes, and raise money for the scholarship fund.
The VAAFA also spotlighted the story of the USS Kirk at the banquet. I, along with the Captain and several other crew members attended as the USS Kirk delegation. The Captain and I both gave short speeches about the story and thanking the VAAFA for spotlighting it.
It was a great event and I look forward to posting pictures and videos as soon as I can.
