50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemorative Ceremony

September 20, 2016

* As part of a DoD initiative to recognize and thank veterans of the Vietnam War, a 50th Anniversary Vietnam Commemorative Display and Vietnam Veterans Recognition event will be held on September 20, 2016 from 5:00 - 7:30 PM at the Museum of Ashe County History in Jefferson, NC. This event is also sponsored in conjunction with the North Carolina Council of Chapters, a DoD 50th Vietnam War Commemorative Partner.

* All veterans - anyone who served between the years 1955 and 1975 - will be encouraged to sign in and place a pin on a map of Vietnam to designate where they were stationed during the war. A formal recognition ceremony will be held to provide a certificate of appreciation and a lapel pin to each veteran attending the ceremony.
