Meet the President’s direction by honoring and recognizing Vietnam veterans for their service to the nation and Navy. Commemorate National Vietnam War Veterans Day throughout the Navy on 29 March 2018 and the year following.
“I call upon all Americans to offer each of our Vietnam veterans and their families a thank you on behalf of the Nation, both privately and during public ceremonies and programs across our country.”
—Presidential proclamation dated 10 November 2017
Execute a Navy-wide, year-long campaign that recognizes the services of U.S. Navy Vietnam veterans and informs the American public about their service, sacrifice, and dedication to our country.
Just as those who came before them and those who serve today, our Navy Vietnam War veterans served their country with honor, courage, and commitment.
Every facet of the Navy we know today took part in the Vietnam War effort. Sailors were on the sea, along the rivers, coastal waters, in the air, and on land in support of ongoing operations.
Today, our bilateral relationship with Vietnam demonstrates our support for a strong, prosperous, and independent Vietnam. Through hard work and mutual respect, we are now close partners.
