What are some ways in which The American Legion is marking the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War?
The American Legion Magazine is running feature articles throughout 2013, in a roughly chronological order, on the war – background, analysis and personal stories. Visit www.legion.org/magazine to read archived articles.
Meanwhile, visitors to National Headquarters in Indianapolis can view a fourth-floor exhibit, put together by library staff, on the war as seen from the battlefront, the homefront and the Legion’s front on behalf of Vietnam soldiers and veterans, both during and after the war. That fight has continued from then, through the 1980 awarding of the Distinguished Service Medal to "The Dead and Missing of the Vietnam War," up to today and beyond.
