U.S. military veterans who served during the Vietnam Era will be honored starting at 10 a.m. today (Friday, Nov. 10) in the Glen Rose High School Auditorium.

The special recognition ceremony is for those who served in any military branch, including the Coast Guard, between November 1955 and May 1975, regardless of whether or not it included service in Vietnam.

Those who attend — or a surviving family member of a deceased Vietnam-Era veteran — will be awarded a Commemoration Certificate and Medallion marking the 50th anniversary of that war.

Robert Marquez, commander of American Legion Post 462 in Glen Rose, will the the speaker during the assembly. It will include singing by the Glen Rose High School and Junior High School choirs, and local Boy Scouts will present the colors.

The deadline for emailing the name, branch of service and discharge date (optional) was set at midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 7. That information was to be emailed to Don Nicholas (don.nicholas@mail.house.gov).
