Vietnam Veterans Day commemorates the sacrifices of Vietnam veterans and their families and is part of a national effort to recognize the men and women who were denied a proper welcome upon returning home more than 40 years ago.
Most states celebrate “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” on March 29 or 30 of each year. Though there is some debate, March 29 is generally viewed as a more appropriate date. On that day in 1973, the last combat troops were withdrawn from Vietnam and the last prisoners of war held in North Vietnam arrived on American soil. It is also the date President Nixon chose for the first Vietnam Veterans Day in 1974.
On Wednesday, March 29, 2017 the National Corvette Museum commemorates this day by providing complimentary admission to Vietnam veterans. Simply check in at the admissions counter to receive you armband, with our gratitude!
The Museum is open daily, 8am-5pm CT and is located at I-65, exit 28 in Bowling Green, KY.
