“Welcome Home!”

AFA’s Commemoration on the National Mall

For those on stage, the event offered an opportunity to reconnect and share their stories—for those in the audience, it was an exclusive glimpse into the legacies and sacrifices of Airmen who were denied a fitting hero’s welcome when the war ended 50 years ago.
