This Vietnam 50thgift is based on the overwhelming success of the Korean War 60th Commemoration Gift which was produced in collaboration with the Department of Defense and the Republic of Korea.  Nearly 500,000 copies have been presented to Korean War veterans in all 50 states, fully funded by Korean companies and individuals, and distributed in cooperation with state Veterans agencies and veterans service organizations. Similarly, the Desert Storm 25thcommemorative gift is currently in distribution, and funded by Kuwait. The Vietnam 50thgift is a state-customized gift that is funded by Americans through the local private sector, state legislatures, and/or patriotic philanthropists.

The Vietnam 50th Commemorative Gift is an unprecedented opportunity for organizations and individuals to give a meaningful, lasting message of gratitude to Vietnam veterans in their state. The first eight pages of the book immediately following the message from the White House, provide space for the state and its partnering sponsors to write a customized message of gratitude to the Vietnam veterans within their borders (an abbreviated example of this state specific messaging is shown below). In certain cases, your organization can assist with the actual presentation and distribution of the gift.

This archival quality coffee table book, A Time to Honor: Stories of Service, Duty, and Sacrifice, along with its corresponding interactive eBook and the film The Journey Home, will be an heirloom gift to be preserved and cherished by veterans and their families for generations to come.

We invite you to join us in thanking and welcoming home the veterans who served in Vietnam fifty years ago.
