Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans SPONSOR TODAY Photo by EMILY HANEY, Journal Star

Slide Vietnam War Began November 1, 1955 and ended April 30, 1975. In 1967, nearly 500,000 American troops served in South Vietnam, along with approximately 850,000 troops of our allies. We embrace our responsibility to help our Vietnam veterans and their families heal from the heavy toll of war. We remember the more than 58,000 whose names are memorialized on a black granite wall in our Nation's capital for having borne the heaviest cost of war. We also pay tribute to the brave patriots who suffered as prisoners of war, and we stand steadfast in our commitment not to rest until we account for the 1,253 heroes who have not yet returned to American soil.

Slide Welcome Home
Vietnam Veterans
This years parade will welcome home the Vietnam Veterans. They served honorably like generations of veterans before them, and many returned home to an ungrateful nation. But these amazing Vietnam veterans came home, supported each other, and contributed to our nation. They made the commitment that our country would never send another generation of Americans into harm’s way without the support and respect they deserve. Our country learned the lesson to support our military regardless of our feelings about a war.
