Vietnam War-Era Veterans to be Honored at Special Ceremony at the Ohkay Owinge Resort Hotel

By DVS

Vietnam War-Era veterans will be honored at a 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Ceremony on March 26 at 10:30 a.m. at the Ohkay Owingeh Resort Hotel, located at 68 NM State Highway 291 just north of Española.

The ceremony is presented by the New Mexico Department of Veterans Services (DVS) and the Santa Fe National Cemetery as part of a nationwide effort started by the U.S. Department of Defense in 2012—and to continue “rolling” through 2025–to honor the 50th anniversary of our country’s involvement in the Vietnam war, and to honor all Vietnam War-era veterans and their families.

A 50th Anniversary commemorative pin and a certificate of appreciation for their military service will be presented to veterans and family members of deceased Vietnam War-era veterans.

This nationwide commemorative effort makes no distinction between veterans who served in-country, in-theater, or were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War era. All answered the call of duty. According to VA data, more than nine million Americans served in the military during this era.
