Vienna Rotary was lucky today, we got to hear some life stories from one of our long-time members, George Creed. George gave us the final talk in a series from our members who are Veterans.
George's story goes from ROTC to Supply Officer, to Europe, to Vietnam and back to Virginia. He shared the tragic loss of his brother, an Annapolis educated pilot who was shot down over Laos during the war. His work for the PIW-MIA cause has been in memory of his brother.
Thanks George, you make us all proud to be associated with you! (2 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

Great talk, thanks Charles! ... See MoreSee Less
