National Vietnam War Veterans Day
National Vietnam War Veterans Day, which takes place March 29, unites Americans to thank and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.
This special day, which was signed into law in 2017 under the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, joins six other military-centric annual observances codified in Title 4 of the United States Code – Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, Navy Day and Veterans Day.
March 29 is a fitting choice for a day, honoring Vietnam veterans. It was chosen to be observed in perpetuity, as March 29, 1973, was the day U.S. Military Assistance Command Vietnam was disestablished and also the day the last U.S. combat troops departed Vietnam.
