50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemorative Medal


The 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War commemorative medal honors the service of all veterans of the Vietnam War.

The ribbon contains the flag of the Republic of Vietnam, which consists of a yellow field and three horizontal red stripes. It is flanked by green to represent the jungles of Vietnam. On the left side of the ribbon is the red, white and blue representing the United States flag, and on the right side is the white and black representative of the POW/MIA flag.

Obverse: "Vietnam War 50th Anniversary" is around the top and bottom and set in a beautiful transparent green enamel. In the center of the medallion is bamboo and a dragon, often used in Vietnamese folklore and mythology, and a recognizable symbol of Vietnam. Below the dragon is an enameled ribbon of the Vietnam Service medal, which was issued to all U.S. military personnel who served in Southeast Asia (including contiguous waters or airspace) from 1961-1975.

Reverse: "In honor of your service" around the top and "You are not forgotton" around the bottom. In the middle is the POW/MIA flag, which serves "as a symbol of our Nation's concern and commitment to resolving as fully as possible the fates of Americans still prisoner, missing and unaccounted for in Southeast Asia". Design is stamped into the medallion with black enameling.

Medallion: 1.45" diameter
