Honoring Vietnam War Veterans

National Vietnam War Veterans Day is an opportunity to recognize and give thanks for all who served during the Vietnam War, including those who were wounded, gave their lives, or went missing. Unfortunately, those who were able to return home, were not greeted with warm welcomes, parades, or other acts of gratitude like those extended to Veterans of more supported wars. Instead, many Vietnam veterans were disrespected and treated with hostility.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day allows us to recognize our Vietnam veterans, thank them for their service, and give them the heartfelt “welcome home” that they should have received many years ago.

“Welcome Home” Vietnam War Veterans Day Celebration

On March 30, 2019, Bethesda Hospice Care is proud to be hosting the 1st Annual Welcome Home Vietnam War Veterans Day Celebration breakfast . We are extending an invitation for a complimentary breakfast buffet and recognition program to all Vietnam War Era Veterans, which includes all United States veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location.
