America's First Freedom - May 2015 - 3

They came from all over the country, from all
walks of life, to fight for freedom on the other side
of the world. They answered the call of duty. They
served with courage, honor, and commitment. As a
nation, we owe all of our Vietnam Veterans a debt
that can never be repaid.
America's involvement spanned three decades and
it's estimated that more than 2,500,000 Americans
served in Vietnam. More than 58,000 Americans
made the ultimate sacrifice and another 365,000 were
wounded. Those numbers are truly staggering, and
America can never repay all those who honorably
sacrificed and served.
As the United States officially marks its observance
of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, America
Remembers is proud to honor those who answered the
call to duty with the Vietnam 50th Anniversary Tribute
Thompson. Craftsmen commissioned specifically for
this Tribute by America Remembers decorate each
semi-automatic Thompson in elegant 24-karat gold
artwork on a mirror-polished blued receiver. Issued
in a limited edition of 500 Tributes, this handsome
tribute captures the courage and sacrifice of all
those who fought for freedom in Vietnam. The
Tribute is a working semi-automatic Thompson
submachine gun in caliber .45 ACP.

Few generations have faced a more daunting challenge than those who
fought in Southeast Asia. When the nation called, they answered.
They didn't hesitate to put their lives on the line and give
everything in defense of freedom.

Vietnam was considered
the "last great war" for the
Tommy Gun. Though it saw
limited use, it was a popular weapon
for soldiers on both sides. According
to some Vietnam Veterans, the
Thompson was a "warhorse" highly
sought after for its superior stopping
power and refusal to jam.

Whether you are a veteran who answered the
call to duty in Vietnam, or you wish to honor
your father, brother, friend or other family
member, the Vietnam 50th Anniversary
Tribute Thompson is sure to
become a cherished addition to
your collection. Order today
