About the event

Join us for the inaugural Vietnam Era Veteran Welcome Home and Pinning Ceremony in Montrose, a heartfelt event dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifices of our Vietnam Era Veterans. This ceremony, taking place for the first time in Montrose, aims to provide the recognition and gratitude that many of these veterans did not receive upon their return home. The Vietnam War Commemoration is a national initiative that seeks to honor and thank our Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifices on behalf of the Nation.

The Vietnam War era, which spanned from November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, was a challenging period in American history. Veterans who served during this time often faced significant difficulties when they returned, including a lack of public support, tough reintegration into civilian life, and the lingering effects of their service. The Vietnam War Commemoration aims to address these historical oversights, ensuring that our Vietnam Era Veterans receive the honor and respect they have long deserved.

This pinning ceremony is an essential part of the commemoration, providing a platform for the Montrose community to come together and express our profound gratitude. Each veteran will be presented with a special pin, symbolizing our appreciation for their bravery, dedication, and sacrifices. The event also offers a unique opportunity for veterans to share their experiences, fostering a sense of healing and unity among all attendees.

By attending this event, you are playing a crucial role in showing our Vietnam veterans that they are respected and valued members of our community. This tribute is not only a recognition of their past sacrifices but also a commitment to their ongoing support and appreciation. Don’t miss this chance to be part of a meaningful tribute to our heroes and contribute to their long-overdue welcome home.
