Welcome Home Veterans
The USS KIDD Veterans Museum celebrates “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” in the museum and on the Riverfront Levee Green. The ceremony honoring Vietnam veterans begins at 11:00 a.m. in the Louisiana Memorial Plaza adjacent to the museum building. This event is free and open to the public. On March 30, 1973, all U.S. troops withdrew from Vietnam under the terms of the Treaty of Paris. These service men and women returned from war to a politically divided country and in 2011, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution to provide Vietnam veterans with the chance at a proper welcome home.
