One veteran was drafted for the war doesn't regret it.

More than 60 people attended the service, according to Adjunct Jerry Diskin.

It is no secret that numerous men and women who served in Vietnam did not get the same "welcome home" received by most of today's service members. These certificates were signed by the U.S. Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter, and accompanied by an Anniversary proclamation letter signed by President Barack Obama.

Vietnam Veterans Day is held every March 29.

The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, designates March 29 of each year as Vietnam War Veterans Day.

CSM Gristow cut the cake and handed each veteran a lapel pin.

After serving aboard three aircraft carriers over nine years during the Vietnam War, Wardee "Gunner" Bruce was finally coming home to his friends and family in the United States.


Speakers at the event included: Congressman Ami Bera; Assembly member Ken Cooley; Bradley Phillips, Pacific District Director, National Cemetery Administration, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; Col. John Klein, Commander of the 60th Air Mobility Wing at Travis Air Force Base; and Russell Atterberry, Undersecretary, California Department of Veterans Affairs. "I am proud of troops that serve today and they deserve the recognition", Walz said. "We all went through Hell", said Butler. "We're human beings. Maybe that's all we ever wanted was just to be accepted", Moberly said. They came home, not to the soldier's rest that they deserved, but to a new battlefield, one in which they would be forced to struggle for the respect and recognition they had rightfully earned. "You did your job, protected our country and kept it safe. and we thank you".

If you are a Vietnam veteran, we thank you for your service.

"You guys don't know that you're heroes, but you are", she said in her closing remarks.

Does a ceremony 50 years after the end of the war take away the sting of what servicemen endured upon their return?

"We are so happy to partner with the state of California and the local chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America in celebration of Vietnam veterans. Their service and sacrifice to this country should never be forgotten", Honeycutt said.

While agriculture and wholesale and retail trade saw steady rises year-on-year, manufacturing remained the pillar of growth, expanding more than 13 percent, the GSO said. Cepeda vividly remembers his father's return, of incidents when people threw garbage at him, called him names, and were just plain very bad toward him and his comrades just because they did their duty for their country.
