Rep. Boback said in a statement afterwards, “The 50th Commemoration Pinning Ceremony for our Vietnam Veterans was a very beautiful and emotional event. We were honored to pair this program with the Wall That Heals, a scaled replica of the National Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Washington, D.C. This humbling occasion gave us another opportunity to continue to celebrate and honor the brave men and women who fought and served their country during that time.”
