STRUTHERS, Ohio (WYTV) – A Struthers American Veterans post honored Vietnam veterans Tuesday.
The AMVets post held an open house, and people living in the city got a chance to meet veterans.
Pictures, articles and other documents were on display. It also gave veterans a chance to share memories from when they served.
One veteran said it was great to be honored.
“It’s nice to be recognized now, and I think a lot of this has come about because of Afghanistan and Iraq and what those soldiers had to go through,” Vitenam veteran Danny Manning said. “I don’t know I would’ve wanted to be involved in that.”
This is the first time the event has been held in Struthers. Organizers say they are looking forward to making it an annual event.
