WDIV (NBC): Vietnam veterans receive special pin from Senator Peters

More than 130 Vietnam veterans gathered to receive special commemorative pins, Friday, in honor of them and the 50th anniversary of the controversial conflict.

Sen. Gary Peters hosted the ceremony honoring the war vets, and the event proved to be an emotional one.

"It's one of the greatest moments of my life. It was worth the wait." said Stan Jr. who was with his 97-year-old father to share his pride.

Landon Sitarskia, 13, accepted a pin for his grandfather, who died 5 years ago.

Local 4's Guy Gordon was there for the emotional moment of long-delayed recognition.
