Honored to pay tribute to the nearly 3 million service men and women who served in Vietnam. They served at a time in our country where people failed to differentiate between the politics of war and the brave men and women who were fighting the war.
The sacrifices they made and how they were wrongly treated during that time taught us a tremendously valuable lesson, but in many ways we're still learning how to treat our Veterans.
While many never received a proper welcome home, we can still thank them by teaching their children about that time in our history and showing them how to treat and thank our Veterans today.
To each Vietnam Veteran in our community, you epitomized strength, valor, courage and love of country, and we humbly thank you for your service.
