Vietnam War Commemoration

Across the Nation, Americans are uniting to thank and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice. This is the main focus of The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration—a national 50th anniversary commemoration, authorized by Congress(link is external), established under the secretary of defense, and launched by President Barack Obama in 2012. Congress penned a total of five objectives, with the primary being to thank and honor our Vietnam veterans and their families, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the Nation.

Thousands upon thousands of organizations have joined us in the noble mission of honoring our
7 million Vietnam veterans, living at home and abroad, and the 10 million families of all who served. Publicly and individually, Vietnam veterans are being presented with a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin as a lasting memento of the Nation's thanks.

If you are a Vietnam Era veteran who was on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, we want to honor your service during this ceremony. If you know someone who deserves that recognition and meets the above criteria, please invite them to the ceremony.
