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.
