President Barack Obama on May 25, 2012 signed a Proclamation commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. The Federal Government will partner with local governments, private organizations and communities across America to participate in the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War-a 13 year program to honor and give thanks to a generation of proud Americans who saw our country through one of the most challenging missions we have ever faced.

Let us remember that it is never too late to pay tribute to the men and women who answered the call of duty with courage and valor. Let us renew our commitment to the fullest possible accounting for those who have not returned.

During the period 2015-2017, Commemorative Partners will plan and conduct events and activities each year that will “thank and honor” our Vietnam Veterans and their families in a memorable, dignified and special manner. This Commemorative Partner Program is designed to assist a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families to include those who lost loved ones during the war and those families still awaiting the fullest possible accounting of their loved one.

The Vietnam War commemoration wants this program to be as hometown centric as possible.

We want to thank and honor the Vietnam Veterans and their families where they live. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact Connie Foster at 815-441- 1211 or foster06@hotmail.com or Gwen Smith at 815-275-7362 or gwenmsmith@hotmail.com.
