VN Commemorative March 29

"The commemorative program will include activities and ceremonies to achieve the following objectives:

To thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including personnel who were held as prisoners of war (POW), or listed as missing in action (MIA), for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States and to thank and honor the families of these veterans.
To highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and the contributions of Federal agencies and governmental and non-governmental organizations that served with, or in support of, the Armed Forces.
To pay tribute to the contributions made on the home front by the people of the United States during the Vietnam War.
To highlight the advances in technology, science, and medicine related to military research conducted during the Vietnam War.
To recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by the allies of the United States during the Vietnam War."

There's a list one can search for local events. In my area the DAR will host a program which I'll be attending. The bulk of my vet organization is VN era although I'm not. I like to remind them I honor their service no matter how I might have felt about the war at the time.

1. a little too late to thank most

but on their behalf, and mine, you're welcome. after 50 freakin' years how about commemorating a few of the "lessons learned" or "lessons willfully ignored" in vietnam.
