JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell signed legislation Wednesday designating March 29 of each year as Vietnam Veterans Day in Alaska.
Parnell was joined for the bill signing in the packed Speaker’s chamber by legislators and veterans of the war, some of whom are serving in the Legislature, including Senate President Charlie Huggins, R-Wasilla, who served in the Army during Vietnam.
“This is welcome home,” he said, his voice cracking. “Welcome.”
