Marking the 50th anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War
The federal government this year will observe the 50th anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War.
Many Vietnam veterans feel they have been overlooked or disrespected.
A group of Vietnam veterans took part in Memorial Day observances today in Dearborn. Tony Gramer served in Vietnam in 1968. He’s glad to see the recognition.
“Better late than never,” says Gramer, “I think it’s the right thing to do. I feel that all the veterans deserve it.”
The federal government is asking businesses and other groups to organize events commemorating the Vietnam War for the next 13 years, culminating with the 50th anniversary of the Fall of Saigon.
