Thank YOU Vietnam Veterans and Welcome Home



Dear Current and Former Warfighters,

On March 29, National Vietnam War Veterans Day, Exchanges around the world will honor Vietnam-era Veterans with free commemorative lapel pins marking the war’s 50th anniversary. The Exchange is privileged to partner with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to offer this token of our Nation’s appreciation to those who served during this time.

As a Vietnam-era Veteran, this remembrance is close to my heart. The American public shortly after the war did not understand the sacrifices these great Americans made. These Warfighters were treated much differently from those who came before or after them. When my father returned from World War II, his hometown of Broadwater, Nebraska, gave him a hero’s welcome. Few who served during Vietnam received a similar homecoming. We are privileged to now have the opportunity to properly recognize the service of our Vietnam Veterans.

Understanding the obligation to remember the selfless sacrifice of the great Americans who raised their right hand, took the oath and made a difference compelled the Exchange to secure a lifelong online military exchange shopping benefit for all honorably discharged Veterans just last year. The Exchange team extends its sincere appreciation to all who have served. Your battles were not fought in vain, and your sacrifices will never be forgotten.

The Exchange is honored to recognize your service with a commemorative lapel pin on March 29. For details, please contact your nearest Exchange. A list of participating Exchanges can be found by clicking here. If you are unable to receive a pin at the Exchange on March 29, events to locate another upcoming event or partners/partner_map to find a Commemorative Partner in your area.

It is our privilege to do our modest part to give these brave warriors the thanks their service truly deserves.

Soldier For Life!All the best,

Tom Shull
