About Heroes Homecoming
Fayetteville created HEROES HOMECOMING as our way of showing all Vietnam Veterans we remember and appreciate everything they've done to defend our freedom - now and forever. The nurses who served in Vietnam are an often overlooked group whose courage and sacrifice deserve to be honored during the Heroes Homecoming celebration.
Fayetteville will host the Heroes Homecoming as the biggest commemoration/reunion of its kind for the 10 days leading up to Veterans Day 2011, featuring celebrations, discussions, performing arts, fellowship, and memories for all those who attend. At a November 11, 2010, press conference, Mayor Tony Chavonne described the origins of the idea for a Heroes Homecoming.
