Vietnam War Commemoration Veterans Pinning Ceremony Hosted by Humana

Community Event

Humana, a leading health and well-being company, is hosting a Vietnam War Commemoration Veterans Pinning Ceremony on Monday, July 15, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Warhawk Air Museum, 201 Municipal Way, Nampa, ID 83687. Veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces between Nov. 1, 1955, and May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to participate in the ceremony. Humana is a Commemorative Partner for the Vietnam War Commemoration, a federal program, and is proud to support and salute Vietnam-era veterans. Local Vietnam-era veterans interested in participating are asked to RSVP to ensure enough pins are available. To RSVP, or for more information, call Humana at (208) 319-3400 (TTY: 711), Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served and several area veterans organizations will have representatives on site for a free veterans resource fair. The President and Congress established the Vietnam War Commemoration program to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, and to thank and honor Vietnam-era veterans. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 9 million Americans served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces during the Vietnam War; approximately 7 million are living today. To reach these large numbers, the program has enlisted the assistance of many thousands of Commemorative Partner organizations at the local, state and national levels to conduct pinning events and activities that recognize Vietnam-era veterans and their families in their local communities.
