Norwich University helped welcome home Vietnam Veterans Sunday, marking the 41st anniversary of the final withdrawal of American troops from Vietnam.

The ceremony in the Plumley Armory Sunday afternoon marked the first official statewide welcome-home celebration for veterans of the conflict in Southeast Asia.  It was one of several events held statewide.

Vermont lawmakers approved a resolution making Saturday "Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Day in Vermont."
