DOVER, Del.- Kent County Chapter 850, Vietnam Veterans of America, says it will host a Veterans Day ceremony on Tuesday, November 11th.

The group says the ceremony will be at 2 p.m. at the Kent County Memorial Park on South Little Creek, Dover.

The keynote speaker will be Terry Baker, who serves as an accredited veterans service officer representing the Vietnam Veterans of America at the VA Medical Center, Elsmere.

"Mr. Baker has assisted veterans of all generations in submitting claims to the Veterans Administration. His expertise has expedited both submission and payment of service-related disability claims," said Paul Davis, state VVA council president.

"Mr. Baker's understanding of VA rules and procedures has helped a great many of his fellow veterans understand often intricate submission guidelines. He's assisted in bringing more than $26,000,000 to Delaware veterans and their families since 1998."

The group says the Veterans Park is home to a Vietnam memorial; a Gold Star Mother and Families memorial; a recently-dedicated Korean War memorial, and of a future Middle East Conflicts memorial.

Group members say attendees are encouraged to bring a can of food for the Veterans United Outreach, a committee of Chapter 850 that will host Thanksgiving dinner for veterans in need.
