Open house March 29 in Portage for Vietnam Veterans Day

"I said about two words to my parents and that was it. They shut it down"” said Dennis Benson, who served in the Army from 1969 to 1970.
However, as the veterans age and the public perception shifts, more people do want to know.

For the second time, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1707 will recognize Vietnam Veterans Day on March 29. The open house is from noon to 5 p.m., and free for the public, at the VFW hall at 215 W. Collins St. in Portage. All Vietnam War veterans are welcome to attend and bring memorabilia to have on display.
