Default Vietnam March 29, 1973

On March 29, 1973, the United States withdrew the last American troops and effectively ended its direct military involvement in Vietnam. Although numbers vary from source to source, More than 58,386 American soldiers lost their lives , over 303,000 Americans were wounded, roughly 2,300 were MIA and 766 were taken as POW.

Today, March 29th, we pay special tribute to the Veterans of the Vietnam War. We offer them the thanks and welcome home they should have received when they returned. We pay tribute to the fallen, the missing, the wounded and the MILLIONS who served!

Default Celebrate (???)

I'm not sure celebrating is the proper thing to do, but this is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Here's to all my brothers, no matter what service; we're all bound by that common experience. Have a good day!

I was a puppy back then and didn't serve. It was a terrible war for those vets. My hat is off to all of you.

I knew Colonel Gerald (Gerry) Berry. He flew the very last helicopter out of Saigon, carrying the Ambassador out. That wasn't until April 75.

In memory of the 58,000+ who came back in boxes, and the thousands who never came back at all.
