A free lunchtime event to honor and thank Vietnam veterans is 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 29 — National Vietnam Veterans Day — at the Scottsdale Civic Center East Bowl.

The event includes complimentary lunch for registered guests, a display of classic vehicles from the 1960s and 1970s, a special guest speaker from the Veterans Heritage Project, and information from HonorHealth about its combat medic training program, according to a press release.

The event, officials at Scottsdale City Hall say, is an opportunity for the community to meet Vietnam veterans and learn about their stories of service and sacrifice. This event is hosted by the Scottsdale Veterans Advisory Commission.

You can register for the event HERE.

Vietnam veteran lapel pins will be provided for all who served in the armed forces during the Vietnam era, courtesy of the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration. Special pins for those who lost a family member are also available, along with materials everyone can use to express their support for Vietnam veterans.

The United States Congress established the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War and to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War and their families for their service and sacrifice.
