For those who may not be aware, The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017 established the 29th of March, in perpetuity, as a national day to recognize the previously unsung patriotism of our Vietnam veterans.
The Michael Trebert Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution in Port Angeles, an official commemorative partner to this program, are working with Clallam County Veterans Association to hold a Vietnam War Veteran Commemoration Ceremony on March 29. The ceremony will be held outdoors at the Clallam County Veteran Center, 216 S Francis Street in Port Angeles, WA. at 2 p.m. We will be following Covid-19 guidelines by wearing facemasks and social distancing. The ceremony will be live-streamed on Northwest Veterans Resource Center Facebook page.
At this special ceremony we will be honoring all our Vietnam veterans – that is, everyone who served on active duty between November 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, regardless of location. We will also honor surviving spouses, and their families. All will receive a certificate and special lapel pin. Our guest speaker at the ceremony will be the Sheriff of Clallam County, Bill Benedict, a retired Navy Commander.
If you are a Vietnam veteran or surviving spouse and would like a lapel pin and certificate, you will need to reserve your pin by contacting, Ginny Wagner, Commemorative Partner Co-Chair, Michael Trebert Chapter, NSDAR at 360-582-6820 or [email protected]
Please join our nation March 29, to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including prisoners of war, or missing in action, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.
Sponsored by Clallam County Veterans Association And Michael Trebert Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution – Sequim, Port Angeles, Joyce, and Forks.
