 Missouri officials have scheduled a Statehouse ceremony on Saturday to observe the state's first Vietnam Veterans Day.

Four veterans — one each from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — will receive medals from Gov. Nixon and Maj. Gen. Stephen Danner, the state's adjutant general, during an event in the governor's office.

Last year, Missouri lawmakers approved legislation making March 30th a day of recognition for Vietnam veterans.
