Johnson Honors Vietnam Vets

The importance of honoring the sacrifice Vietnam veterans have made for us is something Representative Dusty Johnson wants to make sure is done right. In September, he honored Vietnam veterans outside the War Memorial Building at the airport for their service. At the ceremony, each veteran received a lapel pin inscribed with the message, “A grateful nation thanks and honors you,” and a service coin that signifies their sacrifice. The veterans honored at the ceremony were Herb Brosz, Mark Wolf, Ray Pfeifle, Don Jondahl, Dave Green, Roger Schaible, Ron Neitzel, Galen “Chip” Swanson, Stuart Himes, and Gary Sombke. If you know of a Vietnam veteran who has yet to be recognized, Representative Johnson said to call his Rapid City office at 605.646.6454. // – Karlie Spiry
