A Vietnam War veteran has been sentenced to 14 days in jail for "capturing" historic Fort Vancouver and holding it hostage for nine hours to call attention to the plight of veterans in getting needed services.

Kenneth Donald Rose, 40, of Portland, Ore., pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree malicious mischief for his pre-dawn assault on the former military fort last Aug. 29.Jamming the gates of the facility, which now serves as a museum, Rose threatened to blow up the fort but finally surrendered after firing four shots of black powder from a cannon.

Apearing in court Tuesday, Rose apologized for his actions but said he wasn't sorry for "bringing the problems of veterans to light."
