National Vietnam War Veterans Day Commemoration
Culpeper, Virginia – 03-29-19
ABOUT THE MISSION:
The director of Culpeper National Cemetery has invited Patriot Guard to participate with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Culpeper National Cemetery and the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Committee at a ceremony to honor all Vietnam Era veterans. March 29 is National Vietnam War Veterans Day, an annual event observed to recognize, honor, and thank the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975. All who served during this time are considered Vietnam veterans regardless of where they were stationed. Unlike the veterans of previous wars who were welcomed home with great fanfare, Vietnam veterans received no formal welcome or recognition of their service. Because of the bitter controversy surrounding the War, soldiers were often shamed, disgraced, and harassed by anti-war protesters and others. Decades later, Vietnam veterans have finally gained the admiration, respect, and support of millions of Americans who treat the veterans with the dignity they earned and deserve.
