In partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, Joe Wagner VFW Post 7313 will honor all who served during the Vietnam War with commemorative lapel pins.
Any Vietnam-era Veteran who served on active duty between Nov. 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, regardless of location, is eligible to receive a United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin. In addition, the surviving spouse of a deceased Vietnam Veteran is also eligible for a special pin.
"Joe Wagner VFW Post 7313 is privileged to partner with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to offer this token of our Nation’s appreciation to those who served during the Vietnam War, especially to those who paid the ultimate price defending our country and to their spouses,” said Junior Vice Commander Andy Cochran. "There were too few that served during the Vietnam era that received the proper homecoming that their distinguished service respectfully deserves. Our Post is truly honored to commemorate and honor these distinguished veterans that served our country.”
Eligible veterans and surviving spouses are invited to attend a pin presentation ceremony at Joe Wagner VFW Post 7313 at 12:00 noon on April 21, 2018.
