Governor Matt Mead and the Wyoming Veterans Commission crisscrossed Wyoming to participate in “Wyoming Veterans Welcome Home Day” ceremonies on Monday, April 1.

Governor Mead attended events in 4 Wyoming communities. All Wyoming veterans, especially those from the Korean War, Vietnam War, and other veterans who were not properly thanked upon their return home were invited to attend and receive the welcome and thanks of a grateful state.

“Honoring those who have served is critical. It shows our pride in America and shows those who are serving now or will serve that we are indebted to them for their sacrifice,” Governor Mead said. “For those who served and did not come home to a handshake and a supportive nation it is long past due that we pause, honor you and welcome you home.”

The ceremonies today took place in Sheridan, Riverton, Afton and Rock Springs. All Wyoming communities are encouraged to host celebrations to honor Wyoming veterans who may not have been thanked for their service or properly welcomed home.

The ceremonies also featured Major General Luke Reiner, the Adjutant General of Wyoming, and Veterans Commission Chairman Pete Quinnell of Gillette and Vice Chair Lee Alley, a Distinguished Service Cross recipient of the Vietnam War.
