Wednesday marks first National Vietnam War Veterans Day

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Wednesday is officially National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

A bill commemorating the day was signed into law by President Trump Tuesday evening.

It encourages the display of American flags and also names March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

The bill was co-authored by Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly.

March 29 is the day the last U.S. soldiers were choppered out of Vietnam in 1973.
