Vietnam-Era Veteran

A person who served in the United States Armed Forces in Vietnam between 1964 and 1975. Because of the controversy surrounding the Vietnam War, these veterans were sometimes mistreated upon their return home. However, the Vietnam-Era Veteran Readjustment Assistance Act gives these veterans preference in the award of federal contracts.
