Fairfield-Suisun Public Safety Academy salutes Vietnam vets with memorial – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

The last American combat troops left South Vietnam on March 29, 1973. Nearly 30 years later, some of oldest Fairfield-Suisun Unified Public Safety Academy students were born.

But on Thursday at the Atlantic Avenue campus in Fairfield, they brought themselves closer in time to that milestone day and the Vietnam War in two ways: creating an ongoing online project that honors U.S. military veterans, especially Vietnam veterans; and holding a special “sunset salute,” featuring a somber roll call of some American veterans killed in action during the Vietnam era.
