There are over 200,000 veterans in Washington state who served during the Vietnam War. I want to honor these heroes, including unreturned veterans, and their families at Vietnam War 50th Commemoration pinning ceremonies across Central Washington in Moses Lake, Okanogan, and Sunnyside. 

I have partnered with Vietnam War Commemoration as part of a nation-wide effort to thank and honor all Vietnam-era veterans. I want to ensure all eligible Vietnam-era veterans of Washington's 4th Congressional District receive a Service Lapel Pin and the recognition they deserve. If you are interested in receiving a pin and/or attending a pinning ceremony, please complete the application below. If available, you may also submit your DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD-214).
