In recognition of National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29 and Maryland's Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day on March 30, University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health (UM UCH) is holding a special event to recognize and honor Vietnam veterans.
On Saturday, March 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in recognition and thanks for their service, veterans who served in any branch of the armed forces, anywhere in the world between November 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, are invited to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center's Chesapeake Conference Center to receive a United States of America Department of Defense commemorative Vietnam veteran lapel pin and associated documents.
UM UCH is a Commemorative Partner of the United States of America Vietnam Veterans Commemoration. This national commemoration was authorized by Congress, established under the Secretary of Defense and launched in 2012 by the President to thank and honor the nation's Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.
A unique Vietnam War lapel pin was created, and that pin, a lasting memento of our nation's thanks, is what will be presented to veterans. To date, UM UCH has provided this pin to more than 350 veterans.
