U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, welcomed representatives from the Vietnam War Commemoration program to his Washington, D.C. office this week and was presented with a flag and certificate to honor his own public and military service.
Coffman’s congressional office also announced that he would team up with the Vietnam Veteran Commemorative Organization to recognize Vietnam veterans residing in the 6th Congressional District.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 127,000 Vietnam-era veterans live in Colorado.
Commemoration ceremonies in which Vietnam Veterans will receive pins aim to honor veterans of the Vietnam War, including personnel held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action, as well as their families; highlight the service of the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and the contributions of federal agencies and governmental and nongovernmental organizations; pay tribute to the contributions made by those at home during the war; and recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by U.S. allies.
