National Vietnam War Veterans Day

“Our nation owes an eternal debt of gratitude for their sacrifice and that of their families”.

– Sara Heidenheimer, Program & Administrative Manager, 
Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services

Last week, March 29th, we celebrated National Vietnam War Veterans Day. 

On that day of remembrance we visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. Members of our team joined local celebrations where they live, and we recognized the achievements of our Vietnam veterans.  

National Vietnam War Veterans Day was established to recognize the sacrifice of those who fought in Southeast Asia. There are 610,000 living veterans out of the 2.7 million who served in Vietnam.

Our nation owes an eternal debt of gratitude for their sacrifice and that of their families. Today’s veterans can talk about their combat experiences in large part because our Vietnam veterans could not or would not. Much of our battlefield knowledge and effectiveness can be attributed to what we learned from our Vietnam veterans.
