LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn will be hosting a Vietnam veteran lapel-pinning ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 11 during NRA Days at Cabela’s in Dundee.
“Michigan’s Vietnam veterans served our country with honor, yet they were often forgotten when they returned home and received little or no thanks for their service,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “I invite all interested residents and veterans to come out and join us as we recognize the service and sacrifice of our Vietnam veterans.”
The ceremony will start at 11 a.m. at Cabela’s, located at 110 Cabelas Blvd. E., in Dundee. Signs in the store will guide guests to the event’s room.
“In commemoration of the 50-year anniversary of the Vietnam War, this lapel-pinning ceremony will be the latest in a series of moving events to give long-overdue recognition to the Vietnam War era veterans and their families on behalf of a grateful nation,” Zorn said.
A Vietnam War Commemorative Lapel Pin will be provided to any U.S. veteran who served on active duty at any time from Nov. 1, 1955 – May 15, 1975, regardless of location.
The ceremony is made possible by the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration. Information regarding the commemoration can be found at www.VietnamWar50th.com.
