Vietnam Veterans Remembered by Malta Students
April 14, 2021
While the day went by with little acknowledgment, Monday, March 29th was quietly remembered by several youth of Malta. Monday came and went. It was Vietnam Veterans Day, a day of recognition since it was introduced in Congress on May 28, 2012. In 2017 the Vietnam Recognition Act established it as an annual day until 2025.
The Vietnam Conflict took its toll on the military and was one of the few wars that did not have the support of the American people. As a result, Vietnam veterans found themselves coming home quietly, with no "welcome home" celebration or recognition for service.
