Welcome Home Ceremony – National Vietnam War Veterans Day

Mar 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join NVMM at the Museum on Vietnam War Veterans Day for a moving ceremony to welcome home Veterans, many of whom never received that honor after serving our country during the Vietnam War.

The keynote speaker is Chief Master Sergeant Ray Snedegar, U.S. Air Force (Retired) who served for 32 years. In 1975, Snedegar was assigned to help with the mission, Operation Babylift in Vietnam. He will share how he helped save the lives of 145 babies and 12 adults after his plane was attacked. In total, Operation Babylift evacuated more than 3,000 orphans from Saigon.
