Congressman Darrell Issa of the 50th District announced this week that he will host three upcoming Vietnam Veteran Commemoration and Service Pinning events in his district, including one in Escondido on August 3.
The others will be August 2 in Temecula and August 4 in El Cajon.
Issa said: “As a matter of principle, our nation must express its gratitude for the service and sacrifice of all our veterans. As it is nearly 50 years since the conclusion of the Vietnam War era, this is an ideal time for Americans to unite in the cause of recognizing in a unique way the valor and commitment of Vietnam-era veterans.”
All Vietnam veterans in the 50th District of California, or a loved one on behalf of the veteran, are encouraged to register and RSVP for service recognition here first:
As established by the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Program, Vietnam Era Eligibility refers to an individual who served in the U.S. military between November 1st, 1955, and May 15th, 1975.
