Valdosta, GA - The American Legion Post 13 would like to welcome home all of their Vietnam Vets.
The Valdosta post on Williams Street will observe national "Welcome Home Vietnam Vets Day" on March 28th. Which is the anniversary of the day troops withdrew from Vietnam in 1973.
The event begins a 5 PM on Friday. Membership is not required. All Vietnam Vets and their spouses are invited to attend. Organizers say they are holding the first annual "Welcome Home Dinner" because a lot of vets weren't welcomed home in the 1970s due to political tensions.
