Honor Vietnam vets

Wednesday, March 30, has been designated as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day" by Congress to honor all Vietnam War veterans.

On March 30, 1973, the last American service member left Vietnam to return to the United States. They did not return to triumphant ticker tape parades, speeches, etc., as at the end of World War I and World War II. Instead, these Vietnam veterans returned home to silence or worse, in some cases, denigration for having served their country during a controversial war.

Thus, Wednesday, fly your flag and welcome home any Vietnam veteran you know. Show you appreciate what they did.
