WELCOME HOME

In honor of our Vietnam Veterans, March 29 has been officially designated as National Vietnam War Veterans Day, as Americans unite to thank and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

This special day joins six other military-centric annual observances, among them Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.

March 29th is a fitting choice for a day honoring Vietnam veterans. It was chosen to be observed in perpetuity as March 29, 1973, was the day United States Military Assistance Command, Vietnam was disestablished and, also the day the last U.S. combat troops departed Vietnam.  In addition, on and around this same day Hanoi released the last of its acknowledged prisoners of war.

Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center during the last week of March 2023. This stirring display of hundreds of flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes.  Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor all Vietnam Veterans.  This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.

The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people. Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Houston Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags.  Additionally, the display will raise funds for programs of the Rotary Club of Greater Houston Veterans.

The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!

Thank You
