Newton County Historical Society to Honor Vietnam Vets

Local Vietnam War veterans will have an opportunity to share their stories Saturday in Neosho. City Spokesman Wes Franklin tells News Talk KZRG it's about honoring those who served.

"The Newton County Historical Society has done this in the past with the WWII and Korean veterans, and this time it's the Vietnam veterans' turn, and I think it's long overdue, especially in light of how many of them were treated when they came home."

The event will be Saturday at 2pm at the Neosho Civic Center. Speakers on hand include Senator Ron Richard and Representative Bill Reiboldt.
