Crane Honors Local Vietnam War Veterans with Inaugural Pinning Ceremony in Show Low

SHOW LOW, ARIZONA — Last week, Rep. Eli Crane (R-AZ), in partnership with the United States of America Vietnam War Veterans Commemoration, held an inaugural pinning ceremony for local Vietnam War veterans at VFW Post 9907 in Show Low, Arizona.

The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration program is a national 50th anniversary commemoration authorized by Congress.

Thousands of organizations have joined the Vietnam War Commemoration Program to honor veterans across the United States. As the representative for Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District, Rep. Crane has chosen to partner with them to ensure that Vietnam War veterans and their families are recognized for their service and sacrifice to our great country.

Arizona is home to about 184,000 Vietnam War Veterans. Many of these veterans have never been properly honored for their tremendous sacrifice.

“As a veteran myself, it’s heartbreaking to know that many of these heroes who sacrificed so much for this country never received the appreciation and recognition they courageously earned,” said Rep. Crane. “This is a long overdue honor, and I’m humbled to have held the first in a series of Vietnam Veterans pinning ceremonies in Arizona’s Second Congressional District.”
