Vietnam Vets honored at Georgia Capitol
It was a ceremony marking the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War at the State Capitol on Tuesday. Governor Nathan Deal presented the veterans with a Certificate of Honor.
The special ceremony was a way of thanking Vietnam Vets who were never properly thanked when they returned home. Each certificate was personalized with the veteran's name, rank, branch of service, and dates of service.
An estimated 234,000 Vietnam Veterans live in Georgia.
