March 29, 1973 was the last day American troops were in South Vietnam . In 2009 a state law came into effect: Vietnam Veterans Day in Texas. This recognition is commemorated on March 29.
C-141 Tail Number 60177 was the last of the 285 C-141's built by Lockheed to leave active service. She flew 100 POWs out of Hanoi on 12 February 1973, some of them tasting freedom for the first time in six years.
