Congresswoman Virgina Foxx Hosting Vietnam Veteran Recognition Ceremony

In partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, Congresswoman Virginia Foxx invites all Vietnam-era veterans residing in North Carolina's 5th Congressional District to be honored in a Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Pinning Ceremony and receive a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin this Veterans Day.

The ceremony will be held from 2PM – 4PM at the VFW Blue Ridge Mountain Post 1142. All 5th District constituents who served in our nation’s armed forces during the Vietnam War-era are eligible to participate and receive a lapel pin. The Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin is a commemorative pin presented to Vietnam War veterans across the country as a lasting memento of the nation’s thanks for their service and sacrifice. These heroes deserve the commendation and the official welcome home that they never received, and that’s precisely what this ceremony is all about. For those who are interested in participating and being recognized in the pinning ceremony, please complete and return the application form, found on the Congresswoman’s website, Foxx.House.Gov, and submit a copy of your DD-214 to the Congresswoman's Dallas District Office no later than October 31st, 2022. If you need a copy of your DD-214, please place a request with the Congresswoman's district staff as soon as possible. If you have questions or would like additional information on the pinning ceremony, please contact Patricia Bandy in the Dallas District Office at This email address is being protected from spambots.
