The Butler County Veterans Services posted the following message on their FaceBook page this week to commemorate National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
On National Vietnam War Veterans Day, we honor all those who bravely served in the Vietnam War and who sacrificed their own lives on behalf of our Nation.
For almost two decades, Americans raised their right hands and committed to serve and defend our Constitution as uniformed members of the United States Armed Forces during a tumultuous period in our country’s history. Throughout the years of the Vietnam War, 9 million Americans earned the title of United States veteran. Today and every day, we honor their bravery and commitment and give thanks to a generation of Americans who valiantly fought in service of the country they love. We will always remember those we lost and honor those who came home.
Thank you and Welcome Home.
