When duty called, they answered. Some were drafted,
others enlisted. It didn't matter where they came from
or how they got there, none of them could imagine what
waited for them on the other side of the world. More than
two million Americans served in the Vietnam War and the
experience changed them forever.
Together, they fought against a relentless enemy in an
unforgiving country. Some were wounded, some became
prisoners of war, and others paid the ultimate price.
In Vietnam, boys became men, men became warriors,
and warriors became brothers. They built a bond of
brotherhood that will never be broken.
Today when Vietnam Veterans gather at reunions, they
share a bond that most of us will never know. Feelings.
Stories. Secrets. Special moments. The true meaning of
survival. And even though the war is part of history, they
know what it's like to trust their life to the man beside them
and be willing to lay theirs on the line for their brothers.
Proudly Remembering a Generation of Heroes
Today, we honor the members of this exclusive
American brotherhood that stood together in service to
America. America Remembers is proud to introduce the
Brothers Forever™ Vietnam Tribute Pistol. Issued
exclusively by America Remembers, this historic Tribute
is a working Colt® Government Model® honoring the
brotherhood of warriors among America's Armed Forces
in Vietnam. Craftsmen commissioned speciﬁcally for
this project by America Remembers decorate each pistol
in sparkling 24-karat gold artwork on the elegant, nickelembellished slide. Issued in a limited edition of 1,000
Tributes, this presentation ﬁrearm captures the loyalty,
courage, and camaraderie of all the proud Americans who
fought in Vietnam.
The Colt .45 - A Trusted Military Sidearm
In the battlegrounds of Vietnam, protecting each other was
a serious responsibility that demanded reliable ﬁrearms, and
in addition to their service riﬂes, many of the men relied on
their sidearms for added protection. There was no better pistol
for the job than the trusted Colt .45 military service pistol.
With the Colt .45, Vietnam Veterans share a
connection with generations of American ﬁghting men
who came before them. With its ﬂat slide and virtually
indestructible design, the Colt .45 proved itself virtually
unstoppable in Vietnam, even under the toughest battleﬁeld
conditions. The Colt .45 was born for combat. As tough
as the swamps, jungles, and rice paddies were in Vietnam,
this pistol proved itself even tougher. To this day, it
occupies a position of respect unparalleled in the world of
of your choice. If

Tribute Pistol is sure to become a cherished addition to your
collection. Order your Brothers Forever Vietnam Tribute today and

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. As a nation, we owe them a tremendous amount of appreciation.
■ The Tribute features a set of stunning faux ivory grips decorated with a logo
honoring the service of Vietnam Veterans. The grip features a trio of warrior silhouettes
over an outline of Vietnam, encircled by the slogan, "Vietnam War: Ours Was a Noble
Cause." All three ﬁgures represent the unbreakable bond between men in uniform.
■ The left side of the slide features banners reading, "None Could Have Done It Better," and "Brothers Forever," set among familiar
scenes of warriors serving in Vietnam against a forest of bamboo. Bamboo is common in Vietnam and was included as a symbol of
Vietnam on the Vietnam Service Medal which was awarded to those who served.
■ The center image features a group of warriors standing together. The man on the far left is carrying a portable radio and the soldier in
the center carries a M60 machine gun slung over his shoulder. It didn't matter the assignment, from patrols through the remote jungle, or a
tight-knit company defending a small ﬁrebase, you can sense the deep personal connection between the men. The image to the right features
a fellow soldier attending an injured warrior. In tough situations, friendship, loyalty, and words of encouragement could keep hope alive.
■ The right side features two soldiers aiding a wounded comrade while another covers their backs with his
M-16. The image captures the strength of a unit working as one. In the heat of battle men depend on each other.
It's a special trust that only veterans can fully understand. Also featured are banners honoring those who served
in Vietnam. When the nation called, they answered.
■ Each side features banners that read, "Lest We Forget," along with powerful icons familiar to any
Vietnam Veteran. One features a set of dog tags, the gleaming metal identiﬁcation tags of those who
serve in America's military, and a pair of empty combat boots.
