Certificate of Honor Program

Certificate of Honor Program

The Commemoration has established a special recognition program to honor the unique service and sacrifice for four categories of veterans and their families. Certificates are produced and shipped with corresponding lapel pins by the Commemoration to Commemorative Partner organizations upon request through the Commemorative Partner Portal. Certificates of Honor are available for our Commemorative Partners to present along with accompanying lapel pins for the following groups:

  1. Former, living American military POWs from the Vietnam War as listed by the Department of Defense
  2. Immediate family members (parents, spouse, siblings, and children) of American military personnel listed as missing and unaccounted for from the Vietnam War by the Department of Defense
  3. Immediate family members (parents, spouse, siblings, and children) of a veteran who is listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The following certificate can be downloaded and printed by Commemorative Partner organizations through the Commemorative Partner Portal. The accompanying lapel pin may be ordered through the Commemorative Events Request form (DD Form 2956) in the Commemorative Partner Portal.
