This Vietnam Veterans ‘Pinning Event’ was instituted by the U.S. Government under the auspices of the Department of Defense to do what should have been done 50 years ago: thank and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

Any U.S. Armed Forces Veteran who served between November 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, is invited to be ‘Pinned’ and thanked for their service by an Official Representative at this Pinning Event. Additionally, surviving spouses of a deceased Veteran who served during the same period are also invited to be ‘Pinned.’ There is no need to pre-register. Just attend the event in order to be Pinned.

The Department of Defense is also offering some additional honors for this event. If you or your family members qualify for these special Honors listed below, please call Veteran Nancy Fassbender, to register at 480-983-0634 as soon as possible. If you are a former Vietnam POW, a Surviving Spouse of former Vietnam POW, please register.  Additionally, if you are a parent, spouse, sibling, or child of a Service Person listed on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC., or have a Service Person who was unaccounted for or Missing by the Department of Defense, please register by calling Veteran Nancy Fassbender at 480-983-0634.
