National Vietnam War Veteran’s Day

On March 29, 1973, the last American combat troops left Vietnam and returned home. A long 44 years later, on March 28, 2017 the president of the United States of America signed the “Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017” into law designating March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

This law encourages all Americans to display the flag of the United States on National Vietnam War Veterans Day.The bipartisan legislation, co-authored by Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly and Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, is the first federal statute to both recognize Vietnam Veterans and create an annual recognition of the day and their service. Today, the Veteran’s Administration recognizes March 29 with wreath-laying ceremonies at national cemeteries and other facilities all across the country.

Hancock County Savings Bank would like to take a moment to Thank all Veterans for their service to our great country, we recognize and appreciate your sacrifices and bravery.
