Honor our vets
Date posted: March 27, 2013
The Wyoming Legislature and Governor enacted a law in 2011 designating March 30 of each year as Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day. This day was selected as it reflects the day the last American troops would have arrived in Wyoming after departing Vietnam on March 29.
Gov. Matt Mead and military leaders have visited a number of towns over the past few years to mark this important date and to welcome home all those who may not have received a hero’s welcome whether they returned from the hottest of war zones to the coldest motor pool in some remote corner of the globe.
Sheridan area veterans and family members, please join Gov. Mead, Maj. Gen. Luke Reiner, the Adjutant General and local dignitaries April 1 at 8:30 a.m. at the Sheridan VA Medical Center auditorium, 1898 Fort Road, for your welcome home hosted by the Sheridan VA Medical Center.
Regardless of when, where, or how you served, this is our state’s opportunity to thank you and your family for your service to our state and nation.
