As an official United States of America Vietnam War Commemorative Partner, Frisco Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 8273 is proud to host an event to show Vietnam Veterans in our community they are celebrated, appreciated and honored for their service.
Ultimately, this event is the “Welcome Home” they never received after returning home over 45 years ago.
This ceremony will include a keynote address from Major General James E. Livingston, Medal of Honor Recipient, USMC (Ret). General Livingston is the mostly highly decorated Marine Infantry Officer from the Vietnam War and it is the Frisco VFW's pleasure and honor to bring him to Frisco, TX.
In this day of increased health concerns associated with COVID-19, the Frisco VFW requests that social distancing be practiced while in attendance. In addition, face masks are encouraged to be worn and will be available on-site, while supplies last. Hand sanitation stations will also be available in order to mitigate risk.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day
On March 28, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed into law The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, designating every March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
The Commemorative Partner Program is designed for federal, state and local communities, veterans' organizations and other nongovernmental organizations to assist a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families.
Living U.S. veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin.
In order to receive a lapel pin, RSVP to our event on March 29, 2021.
