Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Ceremonies

On March 24, Rep. Perlmutter’s office held a ceremony to honor and recognize Vietnam-era Veterans from Colorado who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces between November 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975. Each Veteran was awarded a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin and a certificate from Governor John W. Hickenlooper’s office.

Over the next several months, Ed’s office will be hosting seven additional ceremonies.

I want to share the video our office produced from the Vietnam War Commemoration ceremony we held at Red Rocks Community College on 24 March 17. We have received overwhelming response to our invitation to participate in one of the recognition ceremonies. We have received over 600 applications from veterans interested in receiving a pin. We have also added seven ceremony dates to accommodate as many veterans as possible.

If you have veterans who would like to receive a pin, please have them register on our website at
