Honoring Vietnam Era Veterans – Tuckerton Borough Hall

April 2, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Honoring Vietnam Era Veterans
VFW Post 12173 in partnership with Tuckerton Borough will be thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans in a pin ceremony.


VFW Post 12173 of West Tuckerton is a partner with the Department of Defense through the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Program to thank and honor our Nation’s Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

We will be honoring all Vietnam era veterans who served in the U.S. military from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975. We make no distinction between veterans who served in-country, in-theater, or who were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period. All were called to serve, none could self-determine where they were stationed, and all were seen in the same way by a country that could not separate the war from the warrior, as we do today.

Additionally we will be honoring:

Vietnam veterans and their families –

1) Former, living American military POWs from the Vietnam War as listed by the Department of Defense;

2) Immediate family members of American military personnel listed as missing and unaccounted for from the Vietnam War by the Department of Defense;

3) Immediate family members of a veteran who is listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.; and

4) Surviving spouses (at the time of death) of veterans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period from November, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location.

All participants will receive a United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration lapel pin and a certificate.

Please send supporting documents to determine eligibility to [email protected] or mail to VFW PO Box 485 Little Egg Harbor NJ 08087.

We must have all supporting documents by noon Friday, April 1, 2022.
