CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — People around Wyoming will be encouraged to say thanks to all veterans on March 30, which has been designated Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day.

This will be the second annual event after Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day was codified into state law last year.

The Wyoming Veterans Commission says several celebrations are planned March 30.

Gov. Matt Mead and others plan to speak at ceremonies that day in Wheatland, Gillette, Worland, Laramie and Cheyenne.
