Congressman Issa to Host Districtwide Vietnam Veteran Recognition Events

July 30, 2021

“These veterans deserve the thanks of a grateful nation they were denied many years ago”

San Marcos, CA – Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) announced he will host three upcoming Vietnam Veteran Commemoration and Service Pinning events August 2, 3 and 4.

Congressman Issa said: “As it is nearly 50 years since the conclusion of the Vietnam War era, this is an ideal time for Americans to unite in the cause of recognizing in a unique way the valor and commitment of Vietnam-era veterans. The truth is that many of our Vietnam veterans did not receive the thanks of a grateful nation years ago. We’re honored to help make that right.”

All Vietnam veterans in the 50th District of California, or a loved one on behalf of the veteran, are encouraged to register for service recognition here first.
