Springfield, Vietnam Veterans Observance
April 3 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
The observance will begin at 1 p.m. at the Vietnam Veterans’ Monument at Court Square, across from City Hall. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the City Hall lobby.
Massachusetts will honor its Vietnam veterans in this way for the 44th year. Of the 9 million whose served in the war from 1955-75, about 6 million are still living.
Officially, this is the fifth year of National Vietnam War Veterans Day, which formally occurs on March 29 of each year. That date is in recognition of March 29, 1973, the date the last U.S. combat troops left South Vietnam, ending direct U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War.
