ICYMI - Issa Hosts Districtwide Vietnam Veteran Salute

August 17, 2021


Recently Congressman Darrell Issa hosted a series of Vietnam Veteran Salute events throughout the District.  

Without a doubt, these were some of the most moving and important events of the year.

In every way, Vietnam service members exemplify service and sacrifice on behalf of the nation, and we must never forget what they contributed to our country. 

Fifty years following Vietnam, the Congressman hosted these special recognition ceremonies in Temecula, Escondido and El Cajon to collectively recognize nearly 500 area Vietnam-era veterans.

Joined with representatives from local government, Veteran Service Organization, Scouts, active-duty and reserve service members, and family and friends of Vietnam veterans, these recognition and pinning ceremonies were one of a kind.
