Honoring Vietnam War Veterans The Lieutenant George Farragut Chapter, NSDAR, is a proud partner of The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, sponsored by the Department of Defense. Vietnam veterans were welcomed home and honored in a moving program held on March 29, 2022. All Vietnam veterans in attendance, some in wheelchairs or using canes or walkers, were invited to the microphone to state their names. All received a hearty applause.
The two-hour program included songs, speeches, stories, and video clips, as well as pin and wreath ceremonies.
