LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead will join in a ceremony to rededicate a Vietnam veterans’ memorial at the University of Wyoming on Friday afternoon.

The memorial is located southwest of Old Main.

The ceremony is part of the second annual Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day, marking the day in 1973 when the last combat troops left Vietnam and the Wyoming contingent returned home.

Besides Gov. Mead, other dignitaries attending will be UW President Tom Buchanan as well as the only two living recipients of the Wyoming Distinguished Service Cross.

In 2010, UW established a Veterans Services Center on campus to serve veterans who enrolled to complete their college degrees. A project coordinator was hired at the center, and the need to refurbish the Vietnam Veterans Memorial came through student feedback.
