National Vietnam Veterans Day, March 29, 2023
As the 91st National Commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV), I ask that all JWV members, veterans, service members, their families, caregivers, survivors and Americans join to recognize National Vietnam War Veterans Day. On Wednesday, March 29, 2023, we, as Americans should unite to thank and welcome home Vietnam Era veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.
JWV as an organization and we as individuals say: Welcome Home in marking 50 years since the last of our combat troops came home. Our depth of gratitude to every Vietnam Era veteran is long overdue. We must recognize the courage and sacrifices of so many including the 58,281 names on the black granite Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the 1,581 still missing in action and unaccounted for.
March 29 is a special day, and as a Vietnam Era veteran, I call on each of you to join me in remembering and reflecting on their service by honoring Vietnam veterans and their families on this 50th anniversary to all who served from November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975. The signing of the Paris Peace Accords in January 1973 required all U.S. combat troops to leave Vietnam by March 29, 1973 and that is why we recognize the 50th Anniversary of the ending of the Vietnam War on March 29, 2023.
