The Vietnam Era Veterans Medallion Program approved by the Kansas Legislature and signed by the Governor provides a Vietnam Era Medallion, Medal and a Certificate of Appreciation from the State of Kansas to veterans.
IF you served active duty in the United States military at any time between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975, you may be eligible.
Since passage of the bill, the agency has honored over 5,400 Vietnam Era veterans, and participated in 33 medallion ceremonies. The Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs Office continues to receive inquiries and applications from veterans and their families wanting to know how a Vietnam Era veteran or their surviving family members can apply for the medal, medallion and certificate provided for by the State of Kansas.
This is something that we would like to do for ALL of our local eligible Veterans or their surviving families. We at the American Legion would like have a Ceremony for honoring these Heroes. Please contact me at [email protected] for more information.
