What is it and how it came to be?
National Vietnam War is a commemorative holiday in the United States which recognizes the sacrifices veterans and their families made during the Vietnam War. It is also a day to give proper recognition to the men and women who returned home from that war and didn’t receive a proper welcome.
On March 29, 2017, an act of Congress honoring Vietnam veterans with a day of recognition was signed into law designating March 29 of each year as National Vietnam War Day by the Vietnam War Veterans Recogntion Act of 2017.
If you see a Vietnam Veteran on this day in particular, take a moment and thank them for their service and welcome them home. It does mean a lot to each and every veteran who served in that war.
Vietnam Veterans of American Chapter 1123 will meet at the Perry County Veterans Building Friday, March 29, 2019 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
“Everyone is invited to come by and thank the veterans for their service and welcome them home,” Dale E. Long, a Vietnam veteran stated.
