The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs is honored to host a commemoration of the 50th
anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War. Our vision for this event is that Minnesota’s Vietnam

them improve their quality of life. The commemoration will:

• Provide an opportunity for healing by thanking and honoring Minnesota Vietnam-era Veterans
wherever they served

• Recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by allies of the United States during the

Vietnam War, especially those who have made Minnesota their home
Who: Vietnam Veterans and their families, allies of the United States during the Vietnam War
(especially those who have made Minnesota their home) and all Minnesotans to thank our Veterans
When: Thursday, June 13 – Saturday, June 15, 2024
