Calling all Vietnam veterans:

In conjunction with the 2015 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War, the State of Georgia wants to honor every veteran who served during the Vietnam conflict.

To accomplish this goal, the Georgia Department of Veterans Service (GDVS), in partnership with the Office of the Governor, created and launched the Vietnam War Certificate of Honor program in Spring 2015.

Every Georgia veteran with honorable service during the Vietnam War is eligible to receive this certificate (This includes vets with service in country and those who served in other capacities around the world).

Each certificate is personalized with the 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 under the signatures of Governor Deal and the GDVS Commissioner.

Eligible dates of service: June 1, 1954 to May 15, 1975. (Verified by a copy of your DD214)

If you’re interested in receiving this certificate, please send an email to the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association at and let us know. We’ll send further information.
