“Many IBEW members served our nation in the Vietnam War. Some gave their lives. So, we as a union are proud to recognize March 29 as Vietnam War Veterans Day.

“It’s long overdue that we as a nation recognize and respect our Vietnam War veterans for all the sacrifices they made. On behalf of 775,000 active and retired members of the IBEW, I say to all Vietnam veterans, ‘Thank you.’”


The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) represents approximately 775,000 members and retirees who work in a wide variety of fields, including construction, utilities, manufacturing, telecommunications, broadcasting, railroads and government.
