MAYOR'S NOTE

Throughout the history of our great nation, countless Kentuckians have answered their patriotic duty.  During the Vietnam Conflict, soldiers from all branches of service suffered unspeakable hardships and risked their lives fighting for the Ideals of Democracy.

American involvement in the Vietnam Conflict – one of the longest military conflicts in American history, began with the arrival of American military personnel in the 1950’s.  It came to an end with the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975 when the last Americans were evacuated from the United States Embassy.

During this long-involved conflict close to 60,000 military personnel were killed in the theater of operations with many missing in action.  Today, Vietnam Veterans are finally getting the recognition they deserved fifty years ago. 

The American people will never forget the sacrifices the brave men and women faced during the Vietnam Conflict.

The City of Winchester will hold a 50th Anniversary event to recognize all Vietnam Veterans with any connection to Clark County – be they were born
here or lived here at one time.  This event is a photo for Vietnam Veterans to take place on the front of the Courthouse Lawn on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 10:00 a.m.  The makeup date will be August 22, 2015 at 10:00 a.m.
