Perlmutter to honor Vietnam vets at commemoration ceremony
Congressman Ed Perlmutter, D-7th District, is inviting all Vietnam-era veterans to be honored at a Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Ceremony on March 24.
All Vietnam-era veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces between Nov. 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are encouraged to participate. The commemoration does not distinguish between veterans who served in-country, in-theater or who were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period.
The deadline to fill out the required application for participation in the event is March 1. All Vietnam-era veterans in Colorado are eligible to receive the Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin, which can be awarded posthumously.
