Vietnam War Veterans Day

Vietnam War Veterans Day event flyer

Please join us for a special proclamation signing and lapel pin presentation ceremony to thank and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice. Please contact 402-471-2458 or ndva@nebraska.gov to let us know you'll be attending. 

As a lasting memento of the nation's gratitude, the Vietnam War Commemoration designed a Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin for Commemorative Partners to publicly present to each veteran who served during the Vietnam War period. Governor Ricketts, along with the Nebraska Department of Veterans' Affairs and Nebraska National Guard will present pins to eligible veterans at the ceremony.

Living United States veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time during the period of November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, are eligible to receive one lapel pin.

LB 153 Hearing

LB 153 Hearing - Feb 7 at 1:30 p.m.

Please join us at the hearing to show support for LB153, a bill which would exempt 50% of all military retirement pay from being taxed. This would not only increase the amount of the current exemption, but expand the number of people eligible for it, and include the National Guard and Reservists.

It would impact over 13,000 Nebraska veterans who receive military retirement pay and make our state more competitive with the states around us, most of which do not tax military retirement pay.

Where: Nebraska State Capitol, Room 1524
