Thanking Soldiers from Decades Ago

Posted: Updated:

They may have not been treated the same as returning soldiers of today--

But military supporters are attempting to set things right--by properly thanking soldiers from decades ago.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War.

The North Dakota Patriot Guard holds a welcome home ceremony for veterans of these wars.

Veterans and their families are acknowledged for their service and sacrifice years ago.

Among the veterans is Robert Haas who says he will never forget his memories of serving in the war.

Even 40 years later--he can go back in time--in an instant.

"We were looking for down pilots off of bombing raids over north Vietnam and if they went down and we assisted in getting them out of the water and provided cover for them. And, you know, the whole experience, I wouldn't trade it for the world," says Vietnam Veteran Robert Haas.

The Tri State Vietnam Memorial Wall was also on display.

The wall lists the North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota soldiers who sacrificed their lives.
