CGCVA National President



            Congress authorized the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, to oversee the honoring of Vietnam War veterans and their families during 2015 to 2017.

            The Coast Guard Combat Veterans Association is a Commemorative Partner in this endeavor.  Consequently, we agree to carry out events and activities to salute Vietnam veterans.  These salutes may be initiated and done by our members.

            Things to honor veterans and their families can be anything you can imagine:  e.g. having students/youths compose essays; holding exhibits (photo, artifacts, models); holding ceremonies; hosting luncheons; giving talks; and so on.

            As a Commemorative Partner the CGCVA is called upon to provide the Vietnam War Commemoration submissions of upcoming events, if applicable, and an after-action summary of what we have done.  To remain a partner the Association has to perform at least two activities a year.

Dear USCG Vietnam Veterans,


As you are no doubt aware, the 50th Anniversary of the US Coast Guard’s participation in the Vietnam War is fast approaching. Reflecting the Coast Guard’s service in Vietnam from 1965 through 1973, this commemoration is envisioned to be ongoing between 2015 and 2023 and is intended to be part of a larger outreach project which simultaneously acknowledges USCG Vietnam Veterans for their service and sacrifice while educating the public on the US Coast Guard’s important role in the war.
