Vietnam vets to be honored March 30
The hardships experienced by Vietnam veterans years ago should serve as a lesson to the American public today with the influx of veterans from U.S. conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a Senate resolution cosponsored by U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.).
The resolution, authored by U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.), designates March 30 as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.” March 30, 2011 will be the 38th anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S. combat units and combat support units from Vietnam.
