On March 29, 2012 President Obama proclaimed March 29th National Vietnam War Veterans Day. This day in 1975 was chosen to be observed i perpetuity because that was the day United States Military Command Vietnam was dis-established and also that day was the last U.S. troops left Vietnam. In addition, on and around this same day Hanoi released the last of its acknowledged prisoners of war. On this day March 29, 2021 I want to wish all my Brothers of the 282nd Assault Helicopter Company a great National Vietnam War Veterans Day. It was my honor to serve with many of you. All gave some and some gave all. To all the men and women who served in Vietnam, thank you for your service and WELCOME HOME.
Remember him well. Best commander I served under. Prayers on the way for him and his family and friends. RIP
