A ceremony to honor veterans who served during the Vietnam War era will be Thursday at 4 p.m. at the old middle school cafeteria, 103 N. Western Ave.
The ceremony Thursday will honor those who served in the United States military, including the Coast Guard, between November 1955 and May 1975, regardless of whether they served in Vietnam. 
Veterans -- or their surviving family members -- will receive a commemoration certificate and pin that commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
Vietnam-era veterans or family members are asked to email don.nicholas@mail.house.gov by the end of the day Monday to provide the service member's first name, middle initial and last name, along with branch of service. The service member's rank when discharged is optional.
Those unable to attend are asked to provide an address so the certificate and pin can be mailed.
The ceremony is being held on National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The holiday recognizes the sacrifices veterans and their families made during the war.
Through a patchwork of state resolutions, National Vietnam War Veterans Day has been celebrated each year since 1973 on either March 29 or March 30. Last year, President Donald Trump officially set March 29 as the date for the holiday.
