“We will honor all veterans and pay special tribute to those who served in the Vietnam War,” said Republican party chairman Colin Simpson.

Simpson said several high-ranking military officials are expected as honored guests, with the Cody VFW Honor Guard and the Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard of Barstow, Calif., scheduled to participate.

The veterans memorial park is located just off the Greybull Highway (U.S. Highway 14-16-20 east), about one mile west of Yellowstone Regional Airport.
