BOISE, Idaho — Dozens of Vietnam War-era veterans were honored Monday during a pinning ceremony at the Warhawk Air Museum.
About 100 veterans took part in the ceremony, which is part of the ongoing Vietnam War 50th anniversary commemoration.
A "Missing Man" table was on display at the event to honor those who did not come home from the war.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 9 million Americans served on active duty during the Vietnam War. Of those, 2.7 million served in Vietnam itself.
Veterans who served from Nov. 1955 through May 15, 1975 - regardless of where they were stationed - were eligible to participate in Monday's pinning ceremony.
After the ceremony, several local veterans organizations were on hand for a free veterans resource fair.
The event - sponsored by healthcare company Humana - also collected food items for the Idaho Foobank.
