On National Vietnam War Veterans Day, Americans are remembering the men and women who served, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and many more who lived half a world away from the early 1960s until the war ended in 1975.

Nearly 60,000 Americans died in Vietnam. More than 150,000 were injured, at least 21,000 of them permanently disabled. Most soldiers returned to a nation divided over the United States’ role in the war, with the traditional welcome home celebrations few and far between.

The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs said the Sunday, March 29, observance is “a way to thank and honor our nation’s Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.”
