City leaders and veterans gather to appreciate Vietnam veterans

Posted:
PRINCETON, WV (WVVA) Several key note speakers including retired Colonel and Bluefield City Manager Dane Rideout, set the tone of the ceremony by thanking all the veterans that served and paid the ultimate price.

Rideout and other key note speakers feel the Vietnam veterans generation of warriors didn't get the thank you they deserved.

Congressman Evan Jenkins, Senator Bill Cole and other politicians told veterans they are working to create more opportunities for them, due to how difficult it can be for them to obtain a job outside the service. 

Retired Colonel, Dane Rideout hopes in the near future, Vietnam veterans get the appreciation they deserve.
