Friend Honors Vietnam Veterans

March 30, 2017

Assemblyman Christopher S. Friend (R,C,I,Ref-Big Flats) sponsored a resolution on the Assembly Floor to honor our nation’s Vietnam veterans for Vietnam Veterans Day.

“The heroes of the Vietnam War often didn’t receive the level of respect they were owed when they first came home, and I believe it is essential to honor these men and women like we do for the brave veterans of other conflicts,” Friend said. “These veterans, and the men and women they served with who never returned home, are some of the greatest examples of citizenry we have to offer. Whether they enlisted or were drafted, they answered our nation’s call to serve, and I’m proud to have been part of the effort to honor them.”
