Coast Guard units encouraged to participate in 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War

Coast Guard units at all levels have the opportunity to participate in the 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War by becoming Commemorative Partners. This experience can provide a meaningful link between present-day service members and those who served in the past – especially for units that deployed or otherwise supported the Vietnam War.
