The Community Military Appreciation Committee is hosting an event on March 29 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
The event — to be held at Clark College — will begin with a panel of several speakers, including Vietnam veterans and advocates, who will speak on issues related to Vietnam War veterans and their families.
“There are still thousands of military members who remain unaccounted for in the POW/MIA effort whose families continue to pray for answers and closure,” a press release states. “Those who sought refuge in the U.S. from reeducation camps following the war still seek closure for the trauma of that experience.”
The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. March 29, in the Clark College Penguin Union Building, Room 161, 1933 Vancouver Way, Vancouver.
Following the panel, Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle and Clark College President Karin Edwards will dedicate a witness tree for Vietnam War veterans on the campus.
