A commemorative ceremony recognizing local Vietnam Veterans has been organized by Bayliff & Son Funeral Home in Cridersville on June 14, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. The event date is also National Flag Day.
All local veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the Vietnam War period November 1, 1955 – May 15, 1975, regardless of duty location (in-country, in-theater or stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period) are being sought for recognition.
The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration program was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. It was authorized by Congress, established under the Secretary of Defense and signed into law in January 2008.
Commemoration activities began in 2012 and are scheduled to continue through Veterans Day 2025. Bayliff & Son Funeral Home is a registered “Commemorative Partner” and have volunteered to plan and conduct events that recognize Vietnam veterans for their service, valor and sacrifice in conjunction with the commemoration effort.
As a lasting memento of the nation’s gratitude, a special Vietnam veteran lapel has been designed for commemorative partners to publicly present to each veteran who served during the Vietnam War period, and who have not been previously pinned. ¬†All local Vietnam War veterans who register to attend the upcoming June 14th ceremony will receive this special pin in addition to a personalized certificate.
If you or someone you know served during the Vietnam War period and would like to be recognized at this ceremony, please email bayliff@bright.net or call 419-645-4501. Veteran name and branch is required to register.
