Vietnam War Anniversary Continues

This is something I did not know about previous to reading this proclamation.

As part of the normal defense authorization legislation in 2008 signed by George W. Bush, a section was included to authorize commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam war. The first event was held at the Vietnam War Memorial Wall on May 28, 2012.

This proclamation is a continuation of the commemoration that is to go on for 13 years.

I found this site useful for more detail.

More Memoranda

Yesterday four more routine memoranda were posted. All are related to extensions of declarations of national emergencies. Iran and Burundi are the countries cited in three of them. The other one is with regard to proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Most likely all of these were in the works before POTUS 45 began his current trip to Asia.
