National Vietnam War Veterans Day, March 29
National Vietnam War Veterans Day is commemorated each year on March 29.
American Involvement in Vietnam
On January 12, 1962, the United States military officially entered the Vietnam Conflict. On March 29, 1973, the last remaining U.S. combat troops left and our military role in the Republic of Vietnam ended.
During that time more than 3,000,000 U.S. troops were deployed to Vietnam.
More than 58,000 lost their lives.
More than 1,500 are still unaccounted for.
A Regrettable Aftermath
Questions surrounding U.S. involvement in Vietnam have always been a source of contention, often costing American veterans the civic and familial support they need.
While the motivations for warfare should always be examined, the people sent to endure the most difficult task of fighting the war deserve the dignity of recognition...
Acknowledgement of Our Veterans
In 2012, a day of appreciation for Americans who served in the Vietnam Conflict was observed for the first time, and a process for permanent establishment of an annual commemoration began. In 2017 the process was finalized and National Vietnam War Veterans Day was codified by Congress...
If you are looking to honor a loved one who served in the United States military during the Vietnam Conflict, please consider the Vietnam Veterans grave marker, the POW/MIA flag, and the Honor and Remember flag.
