Chapter 751 Observes Vietnam Veterans Day

Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 751 hosted a National Vietnam War Veterans Day commemoration March 29 in Lawton, Okla.

Following proclamations on behalf of the state and city from State Rep. Daniel Pae (R-Lawton) and Lawton City Manager Michael Cleghorn, Ken Sue Doerfel spoke, reiterating themes of duty, honor and country from Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s final speech alongside her own personal recollections.

The 50-year observance of Vietnam will continue through Veterans Day 2025, noted chapter President Aaron Boone, and of the more than 9 million Americans who served during the era, about 7 million are alive today. “This is one big celebration that we like to do,” Boone told the Lawton Constitution.
