National Vietnam War Veterans Day to Honor Those Who Served

It is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. A day to thank and honor the nation’s Vietnam veterans and their families.

The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017 established National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Every year on March 29 the nation will celebrate our veterans.

The official day recognizes U.S. Armed Forces personnel with active duty service between Nov. 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975. Nine million Americans served during that time, with an estimated 6.4 million living today. Among those, 2.7 million U.S. service members served in Vietnam. More than 58,000 names are memorialized on the black granite Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen joined others to honor our Veterans on social media.
