Vietnam veterans honored in Longview

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

A very unusual welcome home this weekend, not for those serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, but for Vietnam veterans.

Two groups, the "Patriot Guard Riders" and "Welcome Home Soldier" are holding  a welcome home party for all East Texas Vietnam veterans, something they never got when they came home.

The event will be tomorrow at the Elks Lodge at 2101 East Marshall Avenue in Longview, from 2pm-to-4pm.

All East Texas Vietnam veterans are asked to attended and be honored.
