MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - To honor Vietnam Veterans, the West Texas VA Health Care System held a ceremony on March 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the Permian Basin Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Midland.

This ceremony is part of a nationwide effort of Americans uniting to thank and honor Vietnam Veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.

"They didn't get the welcome they really truly deserved when they came back from the Vietnam War and this is the VA's way of giving back now, and being able to include the community in their recognition," Kalautie Jangdhari, Medical Center director for the West Texas VA Health Care System.
