National Vietnam War Veterans Day: March 29

The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration partners with organizations across the United States to honor Vietnam Veterans. The Natchitoches Parish Veterans and Memorial Park Committee is a Commemorative Partner with this organization. The committee is asking that everyone in Natchitoches Parish take time on March 29 to call, or email, or visit, a Vietnam Veteran and thank them for their service to this great country.

As a part of the Memorial Day Program on Monday, May 29 at 10 am, the Natchitoches Parish Veterans and Memorial Park Committee will honor the Surviving Spouses and Family Members of Natchitoches Parish Vietnam Veterans.  After the program, they will host an Open House at the VFW 1962 and American Legion 10 Post, at 400 St. Denis Street.  During the Open House they will present pins to the family members, serve refreshments, and have live music.  By joining together as a community, everyone can become stronger and renew their faith in God and Country!

During the Memorial Day Program the Natchitoches Parish Veterans and Memorial Park Committee will also honor two Veterans by telling the story of their service to this country and the community.  Save the date of Monday, May 29 for the Riverbank Memorial Day Program at 10 am, followed by an Open House Reception at 400 St. Denis Street.  A tour of the Veterans Park will be held at 9 am for families who have purchased commemorative bricks, and for anyone who would like to see the beautiful park. 

Remember to Thank a Vietnam Veteran on March 29, 2023!
