VIETNAM VETERAN LAPEL PIN
"A Lasting Memento of the Nation's Thanks!"

The Commemoration is providing Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pins to Commemorative Partners for dignified public presentations to living U.S. military veterans who served during the Vietnam War period as a lasting memento of the nation's thanks.

Living United States veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin.

The pins can be received by any Vietnam-era veteran who has their DD-214 papers proving they served in the military anytime between Nov. 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless of location. The war proved, at times, unpopular with the American public, and many of the returning servicemen and women were spat upon, called names and faced protests.

All told, there are 8.7 million people who served from 1964 to 1975; more than 3.4 million served in Vietnam, 47,434 died in battle and an additional 10,786 died in country, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
