November 4th - November 13th
Fayetteville/Cumberland County created HEROES HOMECOMING as a way of showing all veterans that we remember and appreciate their courage, their sacrifice and everything they’ve done to defend our freedom – now and forever. We have a unique bond with veterans, as our town was the point of departure and return for hundreds of thousands of soldiers.
As America’s First Military Sanctuary Community, Fort Bragg Communities wanted to give all of our brave Vietnam veterans the welcome home they so richly deserved. The City hosted Heroes Homecoming, the biggest commemoration/reunion of its kind, for the 10 days leading up to Veterans Day 2011. From concerts and parades, to lectures and movie viewings, cultural celebrations and recognition ceremonies, all of the events at Heroes Homecoming 2011 recognized the service and sacrifice of our Vietnam veterans.
