Local Representative Vicki Strong is spearheading an â€śHonor and Appreciation Dayâ€ť through a concurrent resolution. Earlier this year a resolution honoring Vietnam veterans was passed by the Legislature. On Wednesday a ceremony is being held at the State House at 1 p.m. to recognize veterans of recent wars.
The resolution recognizes the sacrifice of all veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
