I know you won't be able to make it, but here is an invitation I just now became aware of. As you mentioned you were a Vietnam vet, Arizona State University is having a Welcome Home Ceremony for Vietnam vets the 20th of this month.
Here are the details: http://dragoons.org/2015/02/13/welcome-home-ceremony-for-vietnam-vets/
