John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day observances are taking place across the nation, including at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.

At “The Wall,” as it’s commonly called, a number of veterans were awarded Vietnam Veteran lapel pins by Kim Joiner, the acting principal deputy assistant to the secretary of defense for public affairs, on behalf of the Defense Department. Joiner also participated in a wreath-laying event at the memorial.

During this second anniversary of the National Vietnam War Veterans Day, DOD and the Veterans Affairs Department are supporting more than 1,600 similar events in many states across the nation.

On March 28, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed into law The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, establishing The National Vietnam War Veterans Day that is now celebrated each year on March 29.

The recognition is extended to men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces from Nov. 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, whether in peacetime or war. Nine million Americans — about 6.4 million of them living today — served during that period.

As of this month, 58,320 U.S. service members’ names were inscribed on The Wall. The memorial is located on the National Mall, near the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the World War II Memorial.
