Plans are in place at the Manteno Veterans' Home for the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War.
American heroes will be honored July 9th during a program scheduled for 9 am.
Stanley Stam, Business Administrator at the Veterans Home, says the often and one-time neglected Vietnam vets will get their much-deserved recognition. Stam said the military family will step up to pay respect.
"We partner with several military families and conduct such programs every year. We look forward to honoring these Vietnam heroes that were never formally recognized," Stam said.
The public is welcome.
