Vietnam Veteran's Day
Vietnam Veterans Day commemorates the sacrifices of Vietnam veterans and their
families and is part of a national effort to recognize the men and women who were
denied a proper welcome upon returning home more than 50 years ago. The Vietnam
War Veterans Recognition Act, signed into law on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.
Most states celebrate “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” on March 29 or 30 of
each year. Though there is some debate, March 29 is generally viewed as a more
appropriate date. On that day in 1973, the last combat troops were withdrawn from
Vietnam and the last prisoners of war held in North Vietnam arrived on American soil.
It is also the date President Nixon chose for the first Vietnam Veterans Day in 1974.
The Lake Minnetonka VFW Post salutes all of our Vietnam vets.
