The Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Chapter 15 in Pahrump had a very successful BBQ at Ian Deutch Memorial Park on Saturday, June 2, 2018. It was FREE to all veterans (whether DAV members or not) and their families (or caregivers). For Non-Veteran Adults the charge was $5.00 and for Non-Veteran Children (under 12) the cost was $3.00.
