The Little Falls Rotary Club will be hosting a Vietnam War 50th Commemoration pinning ceremony to honor Vietnam-era veterans on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 6 pm at the Little Falls Elks Lodge.  This pinning ceremony is part of an ongoing national effort to honor all living Vietnam-era veteran military service members who were on active duty between November 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless of where they served.

At this ceremony, each veteran will be presented with a commemorative lapel pin as a lasting memento of our nation’s thanks. The front of the lapel pin displays an eagle positioned in front of an American flag and surrounded by a blue laurel wreath. The back of the pin contains the message: “A Grateful Nation Thanks and Honors You,” and includes the official name of the Commemoration.

The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration was established in the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War, highlight their service, and pay tribute to their contributions and sacrifices, as well as those of their families.

For more information, to request an official invitation be sent to an eligible veteran or to make a reservation to attend, please call Colleen Corsi at 315-360-5400 or email her at ccorsi@nysahperd.org.
