Vietnam Veterans Honored at Broken Arrow Military History Center
The Military History Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma is hosting its annual Vietnam Veterans Recognition Day Ceremony on March 16th.
The event will honor both Vietnam Veterans and Vietnam Era Veterans, and is open to all residents and veterans.
The ceremony, which starts at 7 PM, is held at the First United Methodist Church located on East College in Broken Arrow, just across the street from the History Center.
Kenneth Collins, a Vietnam Veteran, spoke about the importance of honoring those who served in the Vietnam War, stating that “we weren’t treated very friendly when we got back home, so this is kind of a deal just to let the guys know you know we’re behind you and we support you.”
Each year, the ceremony honors between 250 and 350 Veterans for their service.
The focus of this year’s event is on Vietnam Era Veterans, who are often overlooked despite their contributions to the country’s military efforts.
The Military History Center hopes to give them the recognition they deserve and ensure that they are not forgotten.
The event is a great opportunity for Broken Arrow residents to come together and show their support for the Veterans in their community.
The Military History Center hopes that this year’s ceremony will be a great success, and that it will help to raise awareness about the sacrifices made by those who served in the Vietnam War.
