There is no admission charge for this kickoff event for the cemetery’s three-year commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the men and women who served in the Vietnam War (www.vietnamwar50th.com). Docents and counselors will be available on site. The traveling Wall is courtesy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and is being hosted by the Avenue of Flags Committee in support of Golden Gate National Cemetery. An Avenue of Flags subcommittee comprised of more than 100 volunteers, co-chaired by two Vietnam U.S. Army veterans — Chaplain (Col.) Leo McArdle, U.S. Volunteers-America, and Romie Bassetto, 1st vice commander, District 26, American Legion Post 105 in Redwood City — banded together to donate hours of their time and effort to make this event a reality.

Endorsements for Measure H include seven former mayors, League of Women Voters of Piedmont, the current Piedmont City Council and school board members. We do share some of the opponents’ concerns about the millions of dollars associated with the project. But we find this plan to upgrade, renovate and fix the Alan Harvey Theater — instead of embarking on a new theater project — prudent. And we do believe the benefits far outweigh the costs. That’s why we’re urging a “yes” vote on Measure H.

“It’s just a great way to support the community and show pride in our culture,” said Rishi Saran, a Newark native who’s been attending the parade since it started. His parents immigrated from India in the 1970s, he said, and he learned about Indian culture through them.

They see that we are not trying to just be on our own,” he said. “We are accepting other communities, and we are trying to help them and empower them, as well, and not just empower our own.”.
