CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day will be held on April 1 with ceremonies in Sheridan, Riverton, Afton and Rock Springs.

Gov. Matt Mead will be among those attending and speaking.

The day of welcoming veterans was codified in state law in 2011 by the Legislature.

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 attend and receive the welcome and thanks.

Mead says it is important to honor those who have served because it shows those who are serving now or will in the future that we are indebted to them for their sacrifice.
