Special edition on Sunday pays tribute to local Vietnam veterans

Published:

Readers are encouraged to pick up a copy of Sunday's Crescent-News to receive a copy of our 36-page collectible tabloid, A Tribute to Northwest Ohio's Vietnam Veterans.

This full-color publication printed on heavy stock paper serves as a recognition of the service to our nation of local Vietnam veterans as well as a preview of the upcoming visit to Defiance, June 12-15, of the Moving Wall-Vietnam Veterans Memorial. This scaled-down replica of the actual Vietnam Memorial located in Washington, D.C., will be displayed along Webster Street on the campus of Defiance College between Whitney and McReynolds Halls.

The C-N's special tribute edition contains details on the many events and displays that will be part of the traveling wall's visit to Defiance. The publication also contains personal accounts by local Vietnam veterans of their experiences during the war and the sometimes rough transition back to civilian life.
