The ‘Welcome Home’ organization is seeking to honor veterans that served in Vietnam through an honorary ceremony. In partnership with the Lafayette Fire Department, the organization is planning to highlight the incredible service and courage that our veterans demonstrated during the Vietnam war.
President of the Acadiana Area of Veterans, Robert Lebon says the veterans “Were drafted into the war..so they were put into a war that they may not have wanted to be in but they did what they were told to do. But when they came back, they were mistreated…we just want to let them know “Thank you and welcome home””.
A ceremony will be held Friday March 29, 2019 to honor local Acadiana veterans. The event will take place at Fountain Memorial Cemetary. For more information about the event, please call (337) 981-7098 or visit their website.
