National Archives Foundation Launches Veteran Recognition Campaign, Part of Multi-Year Commemoration of the Vietnam War – National Archives Foundation

WASHINGTON – The National Archives Foundation today launched “A Grateful Nation Honors Veterans for their Service, Valor, & Sacrifice,” a campaign to honor veterans of the Vietnam War in support of the National Archives’ new exhibition, Remembering Vietnam: Twelve Critical Episodes in the Vietnam War, opening November 10, 2017.

“Nearly fifty years have passed since the height of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, yet for those who experienced the war firsthand, their memory of that period in our country’s history is still vivid,” said Patrick M. Madden, executive director of the National Archives Foundation, the independent, nonprofit partner of the National Archives. “For many Americans, the Vietnam War is an unfamiliar and complex conflict sliding further into the shadows of history every day. ‘A Grateful Nation Honors Veterans for their Service, Valor, & Sacrifice’ gives us an opportunity to give back to the service members who sacrificed for this country, and a tangible way for them to be part of the living history this exhibit will bring to more than one million visitors.”
