Buffalo, NY (WKBW)- The Veterans Affairs Western New York Healthcare System held a special commemoration for Vietnam Veterans Friday in Buffalo and Batavia. Officials with the hospital say the event served as a 'Welcome Home' for Vietnam Veterans to commemorate and recognize the 50th anniversary of the United States entering into the Vietnam War. Dozens of local veterans joined this special ceremony on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo. VA Hospital officials says it was important to hold the event to recognize and remember their sacrifices, since many service members believe they did not receive the recognition they deserved when the war ended.
