Many National Vietnam War Veterans Day events have been canceled in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but some are simply moving online to ensure this holiday is not forgotten on March 29 2020. 

Veteran's Affairs has compiled a list of events that Americans can still participate in from home.

This year a commemoration to Vietnam veterans will be held on Facebook by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund on March 29th at 1 p.m. EST. Vietnam Veterans of America are asking for the submissions of poems, artwork, music, and pictures on their Facebook page with prizes to be selected on the 29th. Likewise, the Veterans of Foreign Wars will also be having a virtual event on their Facebook page.

For those who wish to proudly proclaim their service in Vietnam or their support of those who did, Veteran's Affairs is offering frames that can be displayed around your profile picture on Facebook.
