A half-century ago, millions of American men and women in all branches of the armed forces of the United States took the point in the struggle to prevent communist aggression and liberate the people of South Vietnam.
These heroes, though callously disregarded in their time by some, were bound together by a common enemy, fate, topography, and politics. Now, inspired by The United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, those in the military and their families who share this distress can wear this commemorative insignia as a badge of honor to signify the triumph of your will, or that you still remember your family member whose burden was so great in service to the nation. Worn by those who persevered in this most honorable endeavor, these Vietnam War 50th Anniversary POW/MIA Commemorative Insignia are minted in our proprietary bronze, are hand-finished with an antique patina, hand-enameled, protected with a lacquer coating, and feature a double safety clutch-back clasp to affix your insignia firmly to cap or lapel to display your fortitude to the world.
This POW/MIA Commemorative Insignia features a fully enameled replica of the Prisoner of War Medal ribbon, prominently displayed in black, red, white, and blue. An American eagle surrounds the words “service, valor, sacrifice,” with the ordinal “50th” and the legend, “Vietnam War” completing the design.
Minted by official makers of military medals and insignia, the 50th Anniversary POW/MIA Commemorative Insignia is the thank you the servicemen and women – and their families – who put their lives on hold on America’s behalf never received during this titanic struggle.
Whether you are buying this commemorative insignia for yourself, or you are planning to present one as a remembrance to someone you know who endured their imprisonment, or the families of those imprisoned or lost during the war, these insignia are intended to be displayed at veterans’ events and parades, at reunions, at clubs, and especially in daily life. Pinned to a lapel or a cap, it will be worn with pride as a symbol of those who were called to risk everything and more in defense of freedom. Don’t be left out.
This Lapel Pin measures 1 1/8 inch (28.6mm) Irregular.
