  • Did you participate in Operation Frequent Wind? (03 JAN 2007) A provision in the 2003 Defense Authorization Act allows veterans of Operation Frequent Wind to swap their Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (AFEM) for a Vietnam Service Medal. U.S. active-duty troops who participated in the April 29-30, 1975, operation to evacuate the South Vietnamese capitol of Saigon originally earned the AFEM. Sec. 542 of the 2003 Act (Public Law 107-314) authorizes the conversion. If you need an electronic copy of the 2003 Defense Authorization Act (a BIG 6MB PDF file) email me. Thanks to Roy Strolin for this information.
