SALT LAKE CITY — The state will honor those who have served the country with a Veterans Day event at the state Capitol, Sunday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m.
The event will be held in the Capitol rotunda. The program will include remarks from Don Gale, formerly of KSL and Deseret News, and a keynote speech delivered by Gov. Gary R. Herbert. The Utah Army National Guard 23rd Army Band will perform various patriotic songs.
A special commemorative coin has been produced to present to veterans of the Vietnam War, as this year marks the war's 50th anniversary. This coin will be given to any Vietnam veteran who is in attendance. And five Utah veterans will be honored with the Utah Distinguished Service to Veterans Award for their efforts on behalf of veterans in Utah.
The event is open to the public at no cost.
