American Legion post honors Vietnam vets


Congress has declared that March 30 of each year will be designated as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.”

This Saturday, March 30, Hillsboro Post No. 6 of the American Legion will hold an open house at the American Legion Hall, 285 SW Main Street in Hillsboro. The event is geared to honor veterans of the Vietnam War, but all veterans are welcome.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. and will stay open as long as there are visitors.

“Please come if you are a veteran or if you wish to honor a relative or friend that is a veteran,” said Steven Sinclair, the post’s chaplain.

Sinclair added that ham and beans will be served, and there will be a movie and music.
