The Colorado PGR has been invited to participate in the National Vietnam War Veterans Day Commemoration on Thursday, March 29, 2018 at Fort Logan National Cemetery, 3698 South Sheridan Blvd., Denver, at 9:00AM, Committal Shelter A. As much as I have been able to understand, it appears there is a rolling 50th anniversary which started in 2015 and will end in 2025 commemorating the 50th anniversaries from 1965 until 1975, the period in which Combat Troops were deployed in Vietnam.

The 110th Congress incorporated language in H.R. 4986 authorizing the Secretary of Defense to conduct a program commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. The 50th anniversary commemoration period initiated in 2015 and will end in 2025 directly corresponding to each year between 1965 and 1975, the inclusive dates US Combat Troops were deployed in Vietnam. This event will recognize and thank Vietnam and Vietnam era Veterans for their Service and Sacrifice. As a reminder, the Vietnam Recognition Act designates March 29th of each year as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

Preliminary plans for the event include:

Posting of Colors
National Anthem
Brief Remarks by Governor
Rifle Salute
TAPS
Honor Bell
Flyover has been requested
Howitzer Salute (Maybe ???)

8:15AM - Stage at the Fort Logan Visitors Center
8:30AM - Mission Briefing
8:45AM - Depart for Committal Shelter A to form Flag Line

Jerry "TopSnow" Snowbarger will serve as Ride Captain.

I will be honored to attend and will bring Flags.
