Vietnam Veterans' Commemoration is coming in March
Vietnam Veterans Day in Ohio became a reality last year when Governor John Kasich signed Senate Bill 134 into law. March 26-29 of this year marks the first state-level commemoration of Vietnam Veterans Day. Local veterans’ organizations and communities are encouraged to hold their own events during this time.
A number of major events are planned for the March 26-29 state commemoration. The theme is to finally welcome home and honor those who served, and to remember those who didn’t make it back. Events will be held at the Ohio Historical Society and at the Statehouse. The highlight of the four-day commemoration is the hosting of the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall by the Ohio Historical Society. A formal dinner is planned for the Statehouse, along with an opening ceremony at the Ohio Historical Society and a closing ceremony at the Statehouse. There will also be a final memorial ceremony at the Wall to close out the commemoration.
Another key component of the commemoration is education. Panel discussions will be held at the Ohio Historical Society for the first three days of the event to focus on the experiences of veterans provide a perspective on the war and its aftermath.
The Ohio Department of Veterans Services’ web site contains a special section with a schedule of events and other details of the commemoration.
The special section also contains information on how to volunteer to support the commemoration. Volunteers are needed to help reach out to veterans and veteran organizations, staff the events, greet veterans, provide services to veterans and their families who are in attendance, and several other functions.
We hope all Ohio veterans will plan to be a part. For more information, see the special web section for the commemoration at:
