|Subject:||Vietnam Veterans Day (March 30th)|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution proclaiming March 30, 2015, as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” in Pennsylvania.
March 30th is a historical day – in that it marks the very date that the last of our U.S. Troops departed Vietnam in 1973. There were more than 304,000 service members wounded in Vietnam, approximately 75,000 disabled, and of the 58,193 service members who lost their lives, 3,144 were from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Public debate and political crossfire, in many cases, led to the unfortunate mistreatment of many of our soldiers as they returned to the United States from Vietnam.
Please join me in recognizing these American heroes. If you have any questions, please contact Nate Silcox at 717-787-6538.
Introduced as SR48
