The United States of America Department of Defense Vietnam War Commemoration was established in the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, highlight their service and pay tribute to their contributions.
On Saturday, April 4, there will be a Vietnam War Commemoration Ceremony to honor Vietnam-era veterans. The War Commemoration Ceremony is part of an ongoing national effort to honor all Vietnam-era veteran military service members who were on active duty between November 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless of where they served. These veterans are eligible to receive a Vietnam Veteran lapel pin at the ceremony.
