It was March 29, 1973, when the last of our combat troops left Vietnam. Today, we honor the millions of men and women who served during the Vietnam War, and we solemnly remember the more than 58,000 whose names are etched into the Vietnam Memorial’s polished black granite.
Vietnam War Veterans Day is part of our nation’s ongoing commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
