Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Many are turning out to the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall to honor those who have served this country. Several families and vets are getting a 'thank you' Sunday over on the grounds of the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum. A Veteran's Day dinner was held along with a special ceremony saluting the men and women who have served on the battlefield. One local vet offers his advice to his fellow military brothers and sisters.

"Try to do the best you can,we've got a lot of people out here trying to help. Anything that you need, let your needs be known," Commander Joe Stidams with the Disabled American Veterans said.

The commemorations are not over this weekend in the Twin Cities. The memorial wall will remain in Monroe until Wednesday at 4 in the afternoon.
