Third Annual Vietnam Veterans Day event

(WEAU) - Various veteran service organizations like “Highground” and “Americian Legion” made their way to the Eagle's Club to display veteran memorabilia and information on veteran benefits.

The event served as a way for the community to learn more about the Vietnam era.

One veteran was extremely pleased with the turnout.

"Hopefully we'll have hundreds of people come through here looking through displays and learn more about the Vietnam War and about the healing process that veterans in some cases are still going through,” said Vietnam Veteran Leroy Jansky.

Family members and friends were also attended a banquet afterwards for all Wisconsin and Minnesota Vietnam Veterans.
