Fort Hood to honor Vietnam veterans with pinning ceremony

Local

Fort Hood is honoring Vietnam veterans with a pinning ceremony on Friday.

Vietnam-era veterans were often not properly welcomed home – and for many of these service members, these ceremonies are the first time they are being thanked publicly for their services. 

All veterans regardless of branch of service who served in Vietnam are eligible to receive a commemorative veteran lapel pin.

The ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the Clear Creek Exchage Building.
