National Vietnam War Veterans Day

Veterans’ Voices is directed toward veterans and their families who have given so much to ensure our freedom in this country. This is an area where you may share your experiences, or read of other veterans’ experiences. We thank you for your service, and hope that you know how much you are loved and appreciated.


Wednesday was designated National Vietnam War Veterans day which was created in 2017. This was created to give Americans the opportunity to say “Welcome Home” to us war veterans who never got the reception we deserved when we returned back to the United States.

On this March 29th, 1973, was the day United Stated Military Assistance Command, Vietnam was disestablished and also the day the last U.S. combat soldiers departed Vietnam. Supposedly, Hanoi released the last of its acknowledged prisoners of war.

There were more than 2.7 million Americans served in Vietnam. 61 percent of those were younger than 21 years old. The average age was 23 years old. Vietnam veterans count for almost 10 percent of their generation. 75,000 of those veterans were severely disabled. Then we came home and received little or nothing in recognition and gratitude when we returned to the United States.
