Chapter 20 Vietnam Veterans of Rochester spent an entire day on Monday celebrating those who have served, and the soldiers currently serving our country.
The Chapter 20 Honor Guard spoke at Highland Park's Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Community members, families and vets recognized the men and women who have made sacrifices keeping the United States safe.
"We as soldiers and Vietnam veterans, we sort of paved the way for the new generation of young soldiers that come up and it's important for everyone to thank everyone who served for America," said Valentino Gatto, president of Vietnam Veterans of Rochester.
Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 20 was created in 1981 by Rochester area veterans.
