A “Welcome Home Veterans Rally” helped show veterans that Americans do care about the sacrifice they’ve made for our freedoms.

The Task Force Omega of Kentucky and AMVETS Post 67 hosted the event.

The traveling wall called “The Wall that Heals” that lists people who died in the Vietnam War and the “Agent Orange Quilt of Tears” were on display.

These two pieces travel from city to city throughout the country.

Organizers said they hope today makes people appreciate being a Kentuckian and an American.
