MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Monday, March 29, is a special day for a specific group of our nation’s heroes.
It’s National Vietnam Veterans Day and the War Memorial Center in Milwaukee celebrated their service with a ceremony.
Some members said there was once a time when fighting in Vietnam was something to hide.
But now, they are proud of their history, their accomplishments and their service.
March 29th is an important day.
It signifies when American combat troops left South Vietnam in 1973 – essentially ending the war.
It’s also a reminder that National Vietnam War Veterans Day is relatively new.
