White River Junction, VT— On March 29th our nation will take time to recognize and show our appreciation for more than 3 million Americans that served during the Vietnam War era. March 29 is the day in 1973 that the final troops returned to the U.S. from Vietnam, marking the end of U.S. involvement in the war. White River Junction VA Medical Center welcomes the public and our local Vietnam Veterans to a reception honoring those who served during this time.
Photos, letters, and stories have been submitted by Vermont and New Hampshire Vietnam Veterans and their loved ones which will be put on display in the lobby of building 31 at the White River Junction campus. At 11:00AM on March 27th the US Army Field Band Saxophone Quartet will perform as refreshments and pins are handed out to all Vietnam Veterans that visit. The photo display will remain in the lobby through March 29th.
