National Vietnam War Veterans Day

Tomorrow, Friday, March 29, is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The day was designated by Presidential proclamation in 2017 to honor all military personnel who served during the Vietnam era, regardless of where they served. March 29 was chosen in commemoration of the formal withdrawal of U.S. combat and combat support troops from Vietnam on March 29, 1973.

Finally, more than 40 years after the Paris Agreement of 1973 and the fall of Saigon in 1975, the veterans of the Vietnam conflict are getting the recognition they deserve. Some 500,000 men and women served; 58,000 did not return home. Those who did return came home to a divided nation that did not always support them – and sometimes even vilified them.
