FREDERICK- Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) held a Vietnam War Commemoration and Pinning Ceremony on Wednesday evening at Frederick High School.  The event honored Vietnam War period veterans who served between November 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975, regardless of where they served during that time. The event was attended by 250 local veterans, their family members and area residents. During the ceremony 112 veterans received official pins, which are issued by the Department of Defense.

“It was inspiring to see and hear from so many of our local veterans, and an honor to recognize the sacrifices they made for our country,” said Congressman Delaney. “Our veterans deserve our utmost respect and I hope this ceremony served as a small token of the tremendous gratitude we all have for their service to our nation.”

Congressman Delaney is the author of the bipartisan Protecting Veterans Credit Act (H.R. 2587) legislation to ensure that veterans’ credit scores and credit reports are not adversely affected by delayed medical payments associated with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Choice Program and other VA Community Care programs and the bipartisan Medical Leave for Disabled Veterans Act (H.R. 1827), legislation to make it easier for working disabled veterans to receive medical care.
