Vietnam War Veterans Day
- Date: 03/29/2020
The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration honors 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.
November 1, 1955 was selected to coincide with the official designation of Military Assistance Advisory Group-Vietnam (MAAG-V); May 15, 1975 marks
the end of the battle precipitated by the seizure of the SS Mayaguez.
The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that today there are 6.4 million living Vietnam veterans and 9 million families of those who served during this
time frame. We make no distinction between veterans who served in-country, in-theater, or who were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period. All were called to serve and none could self-determine where they would serve.
