TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a proclamation designating March 29, 2019 as Vietnam Veterans Day in Florida. The Sunshine State is home to more than 519,000 Vietnam-era veterans, the state’s largest veteran demographic group.
Vietnam Veterans Day is observed annually as part of the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, signed into law by President Donald Trump. The act encourages Americans to display the U.S. flag each March 29 in honor of Vietnam veterans.
