VIETNAM WAR CERTIFICATE OF HONOR GROUP APPLICATION
Background on Certificate of Honor: An estimated 234,000 Georgians are Vietnam War veterans. In conjunction with the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War, the Georgia Department of Veterans Service, in partnership with the Office of Governor Nathan Deal, has created the Vietnam War Certificate of Honor program for these veterans. Every Georgia veteran with honorable service during the Vietnam War (June 1, 1954 to May 15, 1975) is eligible to receive this certificate (This includes veterans with service in-country and those who served in other capacities). Each certificate is personalized with the Vietnam War veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, and dates of service printed over the Seal of the State of Georgia and includes the official U.S. Department of Defense’s Vietnam War Commemorative Partner logo. They are signed by Governor Deal and GDVS Commissioner Mike Roby. Each eligible veteran is also entitled to receive a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin.
