LZ Lambeau a prelude to Memorial Day

Veterans' organizations held a homecoming for all Wisconsin Vietnam Vets last weekend in Green Bay.

LZ Lambeau consisted of a motorcycle ride for the 1,100+ who died in Vietnam, an opening ceremony by the eight Wisconsin Tribes, Laotians who live in Wisconsin, and Viet vets. There were military displays around the grounds, a map veterans could sign showing where they were in country.

There was a book signing by Wisconsin vets who participated in the documentary and book about Wisconsin veterans, and the mobile Vietnam wall memorial. 

Dan White of Racine was there, and took some terrific pictures, which he shares with us as a prelude to the Memorial Day weekend.Click the link above for his slideshow.
