June 14 2020.   With many places in the region still closed,  there is a need to do things to feel normal again. One such thing is to honor the American Flag on Flag Day.  The Delaware Valley Vietnam Veterans had wanted to have a nice ceremony, but that could not happen, due to coronavirus shutdowns.

Members had an alternate plane. They would meet at the Levittown Vietnam Memorial on the 7300 block of New Falls Road.  From there, they would go to the township building, for a short ceremony. So just after 12 noon,  about 100 bikes, some vehicles and a fire engine made the trek down New Falls, to Bristol Oxford Valley Road. Once there, they gathered at the Bristol Township Vietnam Memorial for a short ceremony.

There, Charles Knowles, of Levittown was given an award for his participation in different rides and events.  A bugler was there to play taps,  the flag was saluted and the ceremony was done. There was no hanging around or socializing after. by 12:50 PM, the township complex was almost empty.
