50th Vietnam War Veterans Commemoration

The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act authorized a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War to honor and highlight the service of members of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War. U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor is proud to serve as a Commemorative Partner to thank and honor Vietnam Veterans and their families of Florida’s 14th Congressional District. More than 100 veterans have been honored since U.S. Rep. Castor’s first commemoration ceremony.

Castor’s first commemoration ceremony in 2017 was chronicled in the Tampa Bay Times, including a profile of bravery of one of the veterans being honored, which can be seen here.
