A coordinated nationwide campaign is being led by the Department of Defense and supported by VA as part of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration Program. The recognition is being carried out through a series of events nationwide at which Vietnam Veterans (and Vietnam-era Veterans) are being presented with an official Vietnam lapel pin by top government and military officials. A national event will take place at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington on March 29. President Donald Trump has signed a proclamation declaring this date as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
