The Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin has become “a lasting memento of the Nation’s thanks.” Living U.S. Veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin.
Normally, Veterans receive these lapel pins during public ceremonies. However, if there is no commemorative event planned in your area, eligible veterans can visit vietnamwar50th.com and click on “How can I get a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin?” Veterans will receive this via mail at the earliest opportunity.
Event organizers can click here for examples of how to safely host commemorative events using COVID-19 precautions on and around National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Everyone can get involved by visiting www.vietnamwar50th.com. People can also participate in the commemoration on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn by searching for “vietnamwar50th” or “vietnamwarcommemoration.”
Listen to Army Veteran Peter Aylward talk about the commemoration.
