Vietnam Veterans Day, 2021

by HB Auld, Jr.

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, a day set aside in 2017 to honor those men and women who served “in country” in the Republic of Vietnam and its waters during the 20-year war there.

March 29 was chosen as the day to honor these men and women because that is the day of the final withdrawal of US Forces from South Vietnam in 1973.

Since respect and combat support wasn’t immediately given to those who served after the war ended, this day was founded in 2017 to finally offer that respect to everyone involved.

This is the day set aside by Congress to “Thank a Vietnam Veteran” for his or her service. God bless my brothers and sisters who served in that terrible war in Vietnam.
