Four veterans — one each from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — will receive special medals from Gov. Jay Nixon and Maj. Gen. Stephen Danner, the state’s adjutant general.
Missouri lawmakers approved legislation last year designating March 30 as a day of special recognition for Vietnam veterans.
Nixon’s office says those being honored Saturday are Stephen Hill, of Webb City (Army); John Albright, of Sunrise Beach (Navy); Michael Puckett, of Camdenton (Air Force); and David Coleman, of House Springs (Marines).
