Vietnam veterans Ed Ahonen and Larry Nicholson with Vietnam Veterans of America are helping bring a week’s worth of events commemorating people who served our country during Vietnam Memorial Week.
Events run from May 4th through May 10th at the Fargo Air Museum.
Events kick off with a ceremony where Governor Doug Burgum and Senator Kevin Cramer are scheduled to speak.
The veterans say soldiers from throughout the Upper Midwest and Canada will bring a wide variety of Vietnam War vehicles, aircraft and other memorabilia.
Ahonen and Nicholson are expecting a larger turnout this year than past years, thanks to the sheer number of people involved.
They hope people will come and take away just a tiny bit of the true experience of serving overseas.
