This episode of the podcast will take a look at how Vietnam Veterans are being honored in Columbus, Ohio at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum this March 29. A story about the event appeared on the Breaking Travel News website and was titled: National Veterans Memorial and Museum to Host National Vietnam War Veterans Day Ceremony on March 29, 2023.
In observance of National Vietnam War Veterans Day, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) invites the public to join in honoring and welcoming home our Vietnam Veterans with a special in-person and live-stream ceremony on March 29 at 10 am in the Great Hall. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Captain Charles “Charlie” J. Plumb, U.S. Navy (Retired). He will share his story as a “Top Gun” jet fighter pilot who completed 75 combat missions before being shot down by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb ejected from his aircraft, parachuting into enemy territory where he endured six years as a POW.
