ROME, N. Y. -- There was a huge turnout for the unveiling of Phase 2 of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Sunday.
The dedication ceremony was in honor of those who fought in the Vietnam War as well as other Americans who fought in other wars.
The UH-1 Huey helicopter, a chopper known to have played a big role in the Vietnam War, is now a big part of this awesome new memorial.
Remarks were made by many officials in attendance.
Wreaths were laid out, a flag fold was presented and a rifle salute took place.
"I think this was an outstanding tribute today and really credit to Rick Falcone, Mark Jennings and all of those who worked together so hard over the years to make this happen because they did this on their own with a lot of support from the community. With their drive and determination, the abdominal human spirit, that's representative of all these veterans who served this great country, with courage, honor and valor. Vietnam veterans particularly who never got the appropriate recognition and gratitude that they deserved and earned" says New York State Senator Joe Griffo.
There will be another ceremony on Veteran's Day at the memorial in Rome.
More details will follow, as soon as they are released, we'll pass them along.
