Medina County VVA Chapter 385 hosts activities for the Vietnam Veterans of Medina County. One of its main responsibilities is to maintain the Medina County Vietnam Memorial located at 246 Northland Drive (Medina), adjacent to the Medina County Veterans Services Office. The memorial is dedicated to the thirty-three Medina County citizens who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.

Citizens are encouraged to visit the Memorial on Memorial Day after the Medina City parade and cemetery services are conducted. A short service is conducted each Memorial Day at 1:15PM. Chapter 385 gathers throughout the year for camaraderie and fellowship.

VVA Chapter 385 meets at 7:00PM on the first Thursday of each month (no meeting in July). For more information contact Chapter President Jim Kulas, 330-220 3416 or e-mail at:
