Vietnam Veterans Day

Posted by Wellinson Fernandez on Mar 29, 2023 8:52:51 AM

Vietnam Veterans Day is an annual holiday that commemorates the service and sacrifice of the millions of Americans who served during the Vietnam War. Observed on March 29th each year, this day is an opportunity to recognize the bravery and dedication of the men and women who fought for their country during one of the most challenging periods in American History.

The Vietnam War was a significant conflict that spanned over two decades, beginning in 1955 and ending in 1975. During this time, the United States sent over 2.7 million soldiers, sailors and airmen to fight in Southeast Asia. The war was controversial and divisive and many of the soldiers who fought in Vietnam retuned home to a country that was deeply divided over their service.

Vietnam Veterans Day is a time to remember and honor the sacrifices of these soldiers. It is also an opportunity to recognize the challenges they faced upon their return home. Many Vietnam veterans experienced health problems related to exposure to Agent Orange and even suffered from mental health issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In recognition of their service, the U.S Government has designated March 29th (today) as Vietnam Veterans Day. This day was chosen due to it marking the anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S combat troops from Vietnam in 1973. On behalf of UGI Energy Services, we recognize these strong and courageous people who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

There are many ways to honor Vietnam Veterans Day today. You can attend a local event or parade, visit a memorial or monument dedicated to those who served, or simply take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by these brave men and women. You can also thank a veteran no matter the years of service. Lastly, you can make a donation to a veterans’ organization that supports the Vietnam Veterans. As a nation, we owe a debt of gratitude to these brave soldiers who served our country with honor and distinction.

Please join the local event located in Reading's City Park. View Here for more information
