National Vietnam War Veterans Day

National Vietnam War Day

March 29th is National Vietnam Veterans Day, a day for uniting Americans to thank and honor Vietnam War Era veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.  More than 3 million Vietnams Era veterans and their families have been publicly thanked by friends and neighbors during some 19 thousand ceremonies hosted by more than 12 thousand dedicated Commemorative Partners, but there is still more to do.  We lose more that 500 Vietnam Era veterans every day.  Many residing in hospices and long-term care facilities.  Help us honor these brave men and women who served and sacrificed before our opportunity vanishes.

Muskego American Legion Post 356 is such a Commemorative Partner and is authorized to hold recognition ceremonies to honor and thank veterans that have served during period beginning November 1, 1955 through May 15, 1975.
The Commemoration recognizes all who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of duty location. There is no distinction between veterans who served in-country, in-theater, or who were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period. All were called to serve, and most of these veterans served honorably and admirably.

Muskego Post 356 will be holding a recognition ceremony as part of their monthly members meeting on April 8, 2021.  It will be held at the Moose Lodge, s86w21693 Janesville Road, Muskego, beginning at 1900 hours (7:00 p.m.).  Any veteran that served during the period between 11/1/1955 – 5/15/1975 and has not attended a previous recognition ceremony and received a Vietnam War Commemoration Pin, is welcome.
