LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn announced that his office will be hosting a pinning ceremony for area veterans in the upcoming weeks.
Horn is partnering with the Michigan Military and Space Heroes Museum in Frankenmuth to host the pinning ceremony as a way to formally give thanks to those who fought for our country in the Vietnam War. Horn and other community leaders will be presenting official Vietnam veteran lapel pins to those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces between November 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975.
“I participated in a previous pinning ceremony and it was one of the most touching and fulfilling things I have ever had the pleasure of being involved in,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to thank each veteran for their service, thank their families for their sacrifice, and to give those who served the warm welcome home that many unfortunately never received.”
Horn encourages Vietnam War era veterans to attend and receive their pin at the following date and time:
Saturday, Aug. 5
Social Hour: 9 a.m.
Ceremony: 10 a.m.
Michigan’s Military and Space Heroes Museum
Please RSVP to Horn’s office via email [email protected] or phone toll-free at 855-347-8032. This will ensure sufficient pins are available at the ceremony.
All family members are invited to join and the ceremony is open to the public. Additional details to follow.
