Of the 2.59 million Americans who served in Vietnam, more than 58,000 were killed and more than 300,000 were wounded.
Most who returned home never received the welcome they deserved.
Vietnam Veteran William "Perk" Perkins is determined to change that with the event "A Time to Honor Vietnam Veterans." The event is scheduled for February 16, 2013 at Expo Hall in the Gregg County Fairgrounds.
Gates open at noon, with ceremonies at 2 p.m. All Vietnam Veterans and interested parties are invited.
