Vietnam War Veterans Day | March 29th, 2024


In 2017, the President signed into law the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act to codify our nation’s gratitude for those who served.

March 29th, the day the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam, is observed annually throughout the nation.

The official end of the war occurred 49 years ago. Of the 58,220 service men and women who died, 1,800 called #Massachusetts home. Of the more than 2.7 million Americans who served in the Vietnam War, more than 250,000 came from Massachusetts.

This important day should not go without recognition and reflection. Today, please pause to remember and honor those Americansi who served, the men and women who lost their lives, and the families and communities who love them still.
