SACO – The community held a welcome home rally with many people lining up and waving flags for soldiers who served in Vietnam.
The Saco Bay Center said they put on the event so young people will understand and appreciate the sacrifice made by Vietnam Veterans.
Rep. Justin Chenette, Saco Bay Center for Civic Engagement President said, “It’s so important that the next generation really understands and respects the people that came before them – to put their lives on the line for this country and that’s exactly what we’re doing – we’re waving we’re waving flags and signs up by the road to not only remember, but to honor, and that’s so important that the next generation understands what that means and we treat them with respect.”
The fair also had a documentary viewing of the movie “The Last Landing Zone”. It tells the story of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
