Forty-one years to the day after the last American troops were in Vietnam, the state of Texas will welcome its Vietnam Veterans home as the Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument is dedicated on March 29. The date has been officially designated as “Texas Vietnam Veterans Day” by the Texas legislature.
The Texas Vietnam Heroes Exhibit will be displayed for the public in the Lower Rotunda of the Capitol, and the grounds will include Vietnam-era military equipment and educational exhibits on display throughout the day.
The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument dedication ceremony will occur on March 29 at 10 a.m. The Saturday ceremony and family-friendly “Welcome Home Fair” saluting our state’s Vietnam Veterans at the State Capitol is free and open to the public.
