Vietnam veterans were honored today at the Robicheaux Center in Lafayette.

The "Welcome Home" ceremony was hosted by the Galvez Chapter of the Daughters of the American revolution - Lafayette.

War vets in attendance were presented with Lapel Pins as a token of appreciation for their service.

"Service to Country is probably the best service you can have. Whether the war was popular or not, we still had a lot of people volunteering for service in this Countries military. Unfortunately we a wall in D.C. with over 58, 000 names on it for those that served but didn't come home. I knew that if I didn't die on the days mission, I was on tomorrows mission," Ret. Col. U.S. Air Force, Chuck Debellevue said.
