National Vietnam War Veterans Day

Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. March 29th was established as a day 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. Thankfully, our nation has learned how to separate the warrior from the wars because of the way this generation of veterans dealt with the adversity of coming home from combat. Today and every day, at Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, we work to honor their service and vow to double-down on our efforts to include this generation of veterans and their families. With your help we have been able to make the lives of all generations of veterans better.
