WHY: U.S. servicemembers arrived home from Vietnam without a proper hero’s welcome. Thankfully, attitudes have changed over the decades. But it took 44 years before the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act was signed into law in 2017. This milestone anniversary presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show Vietnam vets the respect they deserve, to let them know their sacrifice will never be forgotten and to tell their stories.
