Governor signing our Vietnam Veteran’s Day bill for WI on July 20, 2009. I brought a group of Vietnam Veterans with me to witness the signing of the bill. What a great day! A Vietnam Vet let us use his suburban to transport everyone to Madison. After the signing we all went out to eat to continue celebrating the day.
Vietnam and Vietnam Era vets and their family walk down Aisle of Honor for us to pay tribute to them. The Aisle of Honor was made up of two rows with members from the Army Reserves, Navy, Marines, Local Firemen, Bikers for Christ, Boy Scouts, etc. Everyone’s most favorite part of the event. Congressman Ron Kind, I, and other greeted them with hand shakes and hugs as they came through. I was the last to come through the line with my parents.
Hmong Veterans coming down our Aisle of Honor and then receiving a standing ovation! It was powerful!
