Group organizing Vietnam veterans honor event

An East Texas group is putting together an event that will honor an almost forgotten generation of American warriors, Vietnam veterans.

A group of veterans and citizens in Longview have banned together to create an honors ceremony for Vietnam veterans coming up in February. 2013 is the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam conflict , and organizers say its the one group of war veterans that have never been honored for their service.

For those involved, particularly veterans, it's a way to give a long overdue thank you to servicemen who fought as well and as hard as any in our nations history.

The ceremony is scheduled for February 16th at the Longview fairgrounds beginning at 2pm. All Vietnam veterans are invited to attend the free event.
