National Vietnam Veterans Day



March 29 is designated as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. This is a time to pay special tribute to the 9 million Americans who served during the Vietnam War era, to the over 58,000 names memorialized on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., and to those who never received the recognition they deserved when they returned to America from war. March 29, 1973, is the day U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam was disestablished and the day the last U.S. combat troops departed Vietnam. In addition, on and around this same day, the U.S. Vietnam War Commemoration stated that Hanoi released the last of its acknowledged prisoners of war.
On behalf of our community, Mayor Michael P. Concannon and Director of Veterans Services Robert M. Davis would like to acknowledge the sacrifices, and selfless service to our Nation. To all of our Cities Vietnam Veterans, those that are honored with Memorial Squares and to those who are a part of our nation’s estimated 6.3 million living Vietnam Veterans, Thank You and Welcome Home!
