Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran's Day

March 29, 2016 was "Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran's Day". March 29 was the last day troops were on the ground in Vietnam.

To commemorate this date, the Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR sponsored a proclamation signed by Greenville Mayor Mike Bowers on March 23 at the Greenville City Building.

Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR invited local Vietnam Veterans to attend this proclamation. There were 13 Vietnam Veterans present for this proclamation in honoring them and all Vietnam Veterans.
Mayor Bowers proclaimed March 29, 2016 as WELCOME HOME VIETNAM VETERAN'S DAY in Greenville, Ohio.

Mayor Bowers went on to say that this commemoration includes nine million Americans, with approximately 7.2 million of them living today, and makes no distinction who served in-country, in-theater or were stationed elsewhere during those 20 years. They all answered to the call of duty.

Afterwards Fort GreeneVille Chapter, a United States 50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemoration Partner, thanked each Veteran for attending. Fort GreeneVille Chapter members encourages everyone to thank a Vietnam Veteran on March 29 in recognition of Vietnam Veteran's Day for their service and all the sacrifices they made for our country.
