Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree Dedication 2016

Hometown Heroes

Noon – Ceremony

The Nixon Foundation will honor those armed service members who lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam at our annual Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree Dedication on Sunday, December 4th at Noon in the East Room of the Nixon Library.

Each fallen hero will be recognized by name and families will receive personal ornaments to display on the special Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree.

More than 45 Gold Star families will attend and participate — those who have lost family members in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam. This includes the family of the first American to lose his life in Vietnam, Technical Sergeant Richard Bernard Fitzgibbon, Jr. USAF.

NHRA funny car world champion “Fast Jack” Beckman will present the personalized ornaments to the families. Air Force Col. Wayne Scott (Retired) will moderate the program.

2 PM – Special Film Screening

Special screening of They Were Our Fathers, a documentary filmed at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., as hundreds of children, now men and women, who lost their fathers during the Vietnam War honor their dads on Father’s Day with a special ceremony and remembrances left at The Wall.

Both events are free and open to the public. Admission to the museum sold separately.

Jay Solomon, Wall St Journal Chief Foreign Correspondent

Jay Solomon



Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent at THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Author of The Iran Wars: Spy Games, Bank Battles, and the Secret Deals That Reshaped the Middle East

One of America’s top national security journalists explores the decades-long power struggle between Iran and The United States that led to the highly-debated nuclear deal.

Jay Solomon’s book is the product of extensive in-depth reporting and interviews with all the key players in the conflict—from high-ranking Iranian officials to Secretary of State John Kerry and his negotiating team. With a reporter’s masterly investigative eye and the narrative dexterity of a great historian, Solomon shows how Iran’s nuclear development went unnoticed for years by the international community only to become its top security concern.
