Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon and the Wyoming Veterans Commission will celebrate “Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day” with a virtual ceremony at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 30, according to March 27 press release from the governor’s office. The ceremony will feature remarks by Gordon; Maj. Gen. Greg Porter, the Adjutant General of Wyoming; and Veterans Commission Chairman Travis Deti.

The annual day of welcoming was passed into state law during the 61st legislative session. The date commemorates when U.S. combat troops would have set foot on Wyoming soil after returning home from the Vietnam War in 1973.

All Wyoming Veterans, especially those from the Korean War, Vietnam War, and other Veterans who were not properly thanked upon their return home, are invited to watch the event and receive the welcome and thanks of a grateful state, the release stated. Military, surviving spouses of veterans, and family members are also welcome.
