The New Milford VFW recently held a luncheon to honor Jennie (Berry) Rapp, whose son, Robert C. Berry, of New Milford, was killed in action in Vietnam in 1966. Rapp was presented her son’s New Milford Veterans Medal and the 50th anniversary Vietnam medal.

The anniversary medal was presented by the Roger Sherman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution at a Nov. 11 event, but Rapp was unable to attend.

On hand for the ceremony was Rapp’s family members, as well as VFW Commander Jim Delancy, American Legion Commander Jeff McBreairty, John Avalone, Frank Peet, William Shemeley and Duane Neiman, all Vietnam veterans.

Carol Shaw and Wendy Neiman helped to coordinate the luncheon.
