June 4-7 will offer all of us a chance to welcome home a group of American veterans whose original welcome was less than warm.

The Viet Nam Veterans Welcome Home Reunion will be held at the Casper Events Center. And they need your help. Governor Matt Mead put it this way...

"On June 4-7 in Casper we will have the chance to say “thank you” to the over 16,000 Vietnam era veterans in Wyoming. The Wyoming Veterans Commission is teaming with other veterans organizations to organize the Wyoming Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Reunion. Many of those who served in the Vietnam War did not receive a proper reception when they came home. This event gives us a time to right that wrong.

The organizers of this event need sponsor help for food, refreshments and souvenirs for the veterans and their families. You can help sponsor this important event by going to http://wvvr.wyo.gov/home/sponsors or by calling the Veterans Commission at 307-777-8152. Veterans, please register at http://wvvr.wyo.gov/register or call 307-777-8152 for an information packet. The reunion will include a welcome home ceremony, luncheons, receptions, a parade, a memorial service and a welcome home BBQ featuring famed war correspondent Joe Galloway.

Whether as a business, a non-profit or an individual, please consider doing what you can to say “thank you” to our Vietnam veterans. I look forward to seeing you there."

Matt Mead, Governor
