Celebrating Our Vietnam Veterans
Vietnam Veteran James Galasso

Our first ever online drawing is complete. Thank you to all that participated. 

We asked you to provide us with your stories and photos of the Vietnam Veterans that are most important to you. With the assistance from Creative Consortium in Colorado Springs and local artist, CreativeJake we are happy to share the winner of our "Celebrating Our Vietnam Veterans" portrait drawing:

Gary Roiland submitted our winning photo of James Galasso, who served in Vietnam as a part of Special Operations Group (SOG). 

Thank you to all of our armed forces. Thank you to our Vietnam Veterans. in celebrating our Vietnam Veterans. Below are the original photos submitted by Gary and a collection of our other Vietnam Veteran portraits that can be seen on our Wall of Honor.

Original posting for this drawing


Did you know that U.S. Armed Forces personnel with active duty service between 1 NOV 1955 to 15 MAY1975, regardless of location of service are considered Vietnam Veterans? This is a change of previous interpretation that service members had to be out of the country to be considered a Vietnam Vet. It was signed into law 18 JAN 2018.
