Vietnam Vets Bill Heads to House Floor

A bill to create a Vietnam Veterans Day in Minnesota was approved by the House Governmental Operations, Reform, Technology and Elections Committee and sent to the House floor. The bill as sponsored by Walker Lawmaker Larry Howes would designate March 29 as Vietnam Veterans Day in Minnesota. 1,072 of the men and women listed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. are from Minnesota. March 29, 1973 is the official date that American troops withdrew from Vietnam. A similar bill in the Senate is currently in committee.
