Tuesday, March 29, 2022: National Vietnam War Veterans Day

by HB Auld, Jr.

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, a day when Americans thank and honor all those who served in the U.S. military in the Vietnam War.

This new military holiday was signed into law by President Donald Trump in 2017.

To all of those veterans who served in the Vietnam War: “Welcome Back Home. We are so glad you made it back.” More than 58,000 Americans did not make it back home, but died in Vietnam.

March 29, 1973, the last of America’s troops left Vietnam, is remembered today as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
