This year, as part of the program on Queen’s Treasure, a Vietnam War era veteran from each branch of service will be presented a lasting memento, the Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin, with thanks from a grateful nation.
DAR, Haleakala Chapter serves as a proud partner with the United States of America Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemoration.
