The Royse City American Legion Post No. 100 is presenting its third annual Vietnam War Veteran Tribute, starting at 6:30 p.m. March 29 at Herndon Intermediate School, 300 Blackland Road, Fate.
The post is inviting all Vietnam veterans, their families, and surviving spouses to attend the event, which is designed to honor and remember the men and women who served. The veterans do not need to be a member of the Legion.
The school was named after Harry H. Herndon, the only Vietnam War KIA from Royse City. The Herndon Heroes, which all the students are referred to as, will present a program to honor Veterans.
All Veterans and surviving spouses attending the event will be honored with a pinning ceremony.
In 2017, President Donald Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act that designated March 29 of each year as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
Under the act, living U.S. veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15 1975 regardless of location are eligible to receive the pin.
The post is partnering with The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration in presenting the event.
