Transcript

It was the most controversial point of the most controversial time in post-Civil War America. And as the country marks 50 years since the Vietnam War’s conclusion, churches can be a part of honoring those who served.

The conflict was distinctive for various reasons said Len Vernamonti, a captain in the Air Force who served from 1973-74 out of Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

U.S. combat operations ended in Vietnam in January 1973, with American prisoners of war released over the next couple of months. On March 29, the last U.S. military unit left the country.

Vernamonti serves as the chairman of the AFA Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Committee. The group encourages others to mark the anniversary through a variety of ways that honor those who served as well as their families.

It can be as simple as designating a Sunday and inviting Vietnam veterans and their families to attend. Recognize them during the worship hour, and of course, thank them for their service. 

The North American Mission Board (NAMB) hosted the first Send Network Orientation of 2023 from March 20-22, with 200 church planting missionaries sent out from 174 different churches. Together, they will plant in 34 states and three Canadian provinces, sharing the gospel in seven different languages.
