Vietnam veterans Ed Ahonen and Larry Nicholson with┬áVietnam 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.
