Vietnam War Commemoration

The Vietnam War Commemoration  was proclaimed by the President of the United States  on May 28, 2012.  The commemoration  is a 13-year program to honor and give thanks to a generation of veterans who served in Vietnam.  Our country will pay tribute to more than 3 million servicemen and women who served bravely  from Ia Drang to Khe Sanh, from Hue to Saigon to Lai Khe and countless villages in between.  Beginning on Memorial Day 2012, the Federal Government will partner with local governments, private organizations, and communities  across the United States to participate in the Vietnam War Commemoration.  More than 58,000 patriots who sacrificed their lives along with prisoners of war as well as 1600 still missing and scores of wounded Americans are to be honored.  Congress authorized the Secretary of Defense to develop a Vietnam War Commemoration celebrating the 50th Anniversary  of the Vietnam War.

To that end, The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration was formed.   One of the ways this is to be accomplished is by recruiting Commemorative Partners throughout the United States.  US Wings of Boston Heights Ohio has been selected to be a Commemorative Partner. The program will honor all veterans, but will be Vietnam Veteran-focused and will honor their service, their valor, their  sacrifice and their families.    This mission will be complete when all Vietnam Veterans have been thanked and honored.
