New Hampshire veterans from the Vietnam era will be honored and thanked for their service during a Vietnam War Veterans Day ceremony on Friday, March 29, at the New Hampshire Veterans Home, Commandant Margaret LaBrecque said Monday.
A coffee social time begins at 10:15 a.m., and the ceremony begins at 11 a.m.
The free event, which is open to the public and is co-sponsored by New Hampshire Chapter 41 of the Vietnam Veterans of America, marks the federal holiday established by the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act, signed into law in 2017.
The date commemorates March 29, 1973, when the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam and the last American prisoners of war held in North Vietnam came home.
The keynote speaker for the event will be retired Army Lt. Col. Greg d’Arbonne, president of the New Hampshire chapter of the Association of the United States Army.
Gov. Chris Sununu is expected to speak and officially proclaim Vietnam War Veterans Day in New Hampshire.
