HARKER HEIGHTS — At least 27 Vietnam-era veterans and three widows of Vietnam-era veterans were honored by the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 29 during their meeting in Harker Heights on Saturday.

Commander of Chapter 29 James Dukes said it was to give thanks and to honor their service, valor and sacrifice when the country called upon them and because that recognition didn’t come when the veterans returned home. He read the citation on the certificates prior to the veterans receiving them.
