"A Lasting Memento of the Nation's Thanks!"
The Commemoration provides a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin for dignified public presentations to living U.S. military veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period from November 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, regardless of location. Eligible veterans may receive one Commemorative lapel pin. Review the Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin Fact Sheet to confirm your eligibility.
