Summary
A day to remember the sacrifices of the nine million Americans who served in the Vietnam War.

In early 2017, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act, which establishes March 29 of each year as the National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The holiday is also known as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day."

Although not a federal holiday, the day is set aside to recognize the sacrifices made by veterans and their families during the Vietnam War. It is also designed to honor those men and women who served in that conflict but who did not receive a proper welcome home when they returned to the United States due to the unpopularity of the war.

The date is significant because the last U.S. troops left South Vietnam on March 29th 1973.
