The state of ME is handing out Certificates of Appreciation for the 50th Anniversary of the escalation of the war in Vietnam for those who served there. While it will be a few months more before I went there 48 years ago it covers anyone who served from 1967-1975. Next Saturday lhe local American Legion in town is having a luncheon for the same reason. I plan on attending with my wife although at times it feels like many lifetimes ago or not all that long ago, it makes one stop and reflect nonetheless. Here is the certificate with coin up top.

Thank you and to others, for their service and responses.

My wife and I went to the American Legion Post 50 luncheon today and here is a shot of the organization that sponsored the luncheon along with the Legion and three organizations in town that supplied the food.

Here is the flag of the sponsor



Here is a shot of the Vietnam Veterans who came, as you can see my wife jumped the gun and didn't catch me saluting.

That's great news Banjo. Good to see vets and serving members are held in such high esteem in the US. Here in the UK veterans of both World Wars are highly regarded, but not so much beyond that.

Actually vets from the Vietnam and Korean wars have never been recognized like those from WW I and II in the US. This is the first formal recognition taken and started by Pres. Obama to be taken nationwide until it has reached each state. I know many returning Vietnam Veterans returned to a less than appreciating nation due to the times.
