National Vietnam War Veterans Day

  • 29 Mar 2018

(Excerpts from Vietnam War Commemoration SITREP 2018 – Issue 2)

The first anniversary of our National Vietnam War Veterans Day is one month away. We all are thrilled to witness our national colors flying annually throughout the country to honor Vietnam veterans!

On behalf of Secretary Mattis, our Executive Agent, Mr. Michael Rhodes, encouraged all 56 state, commonwealth and territorial governors, and the Mayor of the District of Columbia, to help lead the nationwide effort on this special day. Many will either host an event that thanks and honors Vietnam veterans and their families, issue a proclamation, release a public service announcement or engage the media to help resonate their efforts and our national voice; some plan to engage in all these ways and we are so grateful!

In Washington, D.C., senior Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs (VA) officials will conduct a joint wreath-laying at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The VA and its many subsidiaries throughout the country also are planning commemorative events on or around March 29.

Myriad Army & Air Force (AAFES), Marine Corps (MCX), and Navy (NEX) Exchanges, and Defense Commissaries (DeCA) around the world also plan to host events. AAFES even has “wrapped” three trucks that will travel the “lower 48” delivering items to exchanges serving military members stationed throughout the U.S. Thank you, AAFES, MCX, NEX & DeCA!

Along with all our existing free items available to enhance your commemorative events, we’ve developed five new, high-resolution posters designed for March 29 that you can download and print at your convenience..

For any partner not yet committed, we invite you to join the Nation and thank the Vietnam veterans in your communities on their distinctive day. Requesting our support is easy, and even a simple wreath-laying will be greatly appreciated by our Vietnam veterans!

Thank you, all – Proud Partners with The U.S.A. Vietnam War Commemoration – for helping bring our country together to thank and honor these unsung warriors and their families!
