National Vietnam War Veteran Day

PEPPERELL — National Vietnam War Veterans Day is observed every year on March 29, and it is a way to thank and honor our nation’s Vietnam Veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

Commemorative events like wreath-laying ceremonies, speeches, and luncheons are held to mark the occasion at venues that include the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC, war veteran medical facilities, and military cemeteries.

Vietnam Veteran Kenny English gathered in Pepperell with other Veterans from the same conflict for the recently-established day of remembrance. English, who is now retired, enjoys raising the town flag each day.

“I love this country and it is the greatest in the world,” English said.

Vietnam War Veterans Day was first observed as a one-time occasion on March 29, 2012, when President Barack Obama issued a proclamation calling on “all Americans to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.” The day was then introduced as an annual event in 2017 when President Donald Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017.
