Vietnam Veterans Pin Program

Speaking at the Vietnam Veterans Pinning Ceremony

About

The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act established the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration with an objective to thank and honor our 7 million Vietnam veterans and 10 million families of those who served for their heroic service and sacrifice on behalf of the Nation. I am honored to partner with this commemorative program to present each participating veteran or family member with a Vietnam Veteran lapel pin and a certificate of special recognition as a token of the nation’s gratitude.
