[ARCHIVED] Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Ceremony

To commemorate Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans’ Day, Chief Executive Matt Vincent invites all Butte-Silver Bow citizens to join him and the United Veterans Council of Butte on Wednesday, March 30, at 12:15 p.m. for a Missing in Action Ceremony to honor our fallen soldiers, prisoners of wars, and those missing in action.

The ceremony will also honor a special Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemorative Committee event. The United Veterans Council of Butte has created a collection of photographs and biographies to honor Butte-Silver Bow Vietnam War fallen heroes, and will be displaying them in the Butte-Silver Bow Courthouse Rotunda.

Welcome Home Veterans Day was created by the 62nd Montana Legislature’s House Bill 255 to commemorate the day in 1973 when all combat units and combat support units arrive home from the former South Vietnam, and is recognized on March 30th of each year.
