Honoring Vietnam Veterans on March 29

flyerlogomarch29vietvetday20130321s-2(Franklin) — The James Stewart Chapter is proud to be a partner with the Vietnam 50th Anniversary Commemorative. March 29 was the last day in which U.S. troops were on the ground in Vietnam.

Our chapter is just one of nearly 9,000 organizations across the country who have joined with the Department of Defense as commemorative partners to honor our Nation’s Vietnam Veterans.

Vietnam Veterans Day is celebrated on March 29th or 30th in states across the nation. March 29, 2016, has been designated as a day for all partners to express their tremendous gratitude and support to this generation of Americans   across the Nation.

As authorized by Congress and on behalf of the nation, commemorative partners are doing what should have been done 50 years ago: thanking and honoring our Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice … just as America did for the veterans of World War II and Korea.

Currently there are 7.2 million living Vietnam veterans and the families of all 9 million who served.

The Commemoration’s primary mission, as penned by Congress, is to thank and honor our Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the nation.

By any standard, this is a noble endeavor for all the right reasons. We will leave discussions and debates over the political or social controversies that occurred 50 years ago to others.

James Stewart members will be in Franklin passing out Vietnam Commemoration Stickers on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 to everyone they meet so all may wear that sticker all day in support of the Vietnam Veterans. We will be placing brochures around town so that you can read about the commemorative. Members will also present bumper stickers and commemorative pins to all Vietnam Veterans they know.

We want to thank the U.S. Government for instituting a national effort to do what should have been done 50 years ago: thank and honor our Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice … and properly welcome them home.

We ask that you join us in saying “Thank You” and “Job Well Done” to our Vietnam Veterans and their families. They deserve it!
