Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran’s Day Celebration @ Gilchrist
For our 5th annual Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran’s Day Celebration, we are thrilled to share with you our 2023 keynote speaker, Rocky Bleier. Drafted by the Steelers out of Notre Dame, he played just ten 10 games his rookie year when his football career was unexpectedly halted. He was drafted again, but this time by the United States Army, to serve his country in Vietnam. In the Summer of 1969, he suffered serious injuries to both legs while his platoon was recovering causalities. The doctors told him that he would never play football again. As they say, the rest is NFL History. Mr. Bleier not only recovered from his combat injuries but returned to the Pittsburg Steelers to win four Super Bowls.
Mr. Bleier will speak about returning from Vietnam and the struggles that many Veterans face when they returned home. He will inspire us with the people who helped him become one of the biggest comeback stories in NFL History: the color-blind soldier who carried him to safety, a triple amputee soldier in the hospital who encouraged him to never give up, and the letter from Art Rooney that implored Bleier to “Come Back. We need you!”
The event is free to ALL Veterans who served during the Vietnam War. Registration is open. You may go to gilchristcares.org/welcome-
home-celebration to register. We look forward to seeing you there.
We have exciting news for our veterans. Now there is a website that can help our veterans find the best military friendly higher education instutions.
A college degree helps active military members and veterans prepare for and transition to civilian life. It’s vital that active-duty military members and veterans are able to find a school that can accommodate their needs and is compatible with their long-term career goals.
In an effort to support military members in their pursuit of quality college education, we created a guide to the best military-friendly colleges.
