Stand Up For America Day
The United States was embroiled in a controversial war in Vietnam in the '60s and '70s. This controversy unfortunately manifested itself in civil unrest, divisiveness, and anti-American protests in cities and on college campuses across the country.

The most poignant and damaging of these acts was the poor treatment of returning soldiers. Those unpatriotic acts and atrocities committed against the American soldier prompted former Mayor P.B. Edwards Jr., a decorated veteran of World War II who was permanently wounded in the Battle of the Bulge, with the cooperation of the Port Wentworth Missionary Alliance Church, to establish this day to recognize America and particularly the American soldier -- hence was born "Stand Up for America Day" in 1971.
