Several dozen former members of the South Vietnamese military, who now live in North Texas, were there to pay honor.  Lt. Mike Doan was among them.

“We all remember the service that American soldiers have sacrificed their lives to come to Vietnam to offer and fight for the freedom of South Vietnam,” said Doan.

Both the U.S. and South Vietnamese national anthems were sung. The service also included a wreath laying and prayers of remembrance.
