It was a packed house during a pinning ceremony for several Vietnam veterans.

Congressman Filemon Vela is hosting a total of six pinning ceremonies across the state of Texas to honor Vietnam veterans.

Vela said it was an opportunity to recognize the veterans and their families for their service.

“The least we can do 50 years later is honor them for their service and welcome them back,” said Vela.

The next pinning ceremony will take place on Wednesday morning in Brownsville.
