On November 5th, 2009, Oklahoma Governor, Brad Henry, issued a proclamation declaring 2010 to be the Year of the Vietnam Veteran.
“It is important to honor the sacrifices made by all our veterans. It is especially appropriate, however, that we do so for the men and women who served with distinction and valor in Vietnam, but were denied such praise upon their return home.”
- Governor Brad Henry
Community leaders, civilians and military organizations across Oklahoma are joining forces to produce a statewide Oklahoma Salute to Vietnam Veterans on the weekend of July 2-4th, 2010. The event will provide a venue for the people of Oklahoma to come together and give our Vietnam Veterans the long overdue recognition and gratitude for service they so richly deserve.
