Hundreds of Vietnam War veterans from Cobb and surrounding counties will be shown recognition Saturday that they and many of their peers did not receive upon returning home decades ago.

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners is hosting a Certificate of Honor and Lapel Pin Ceremony at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Cobb Civic Center. About 750 veterans have RSVP’ed for the event, though organizers are expecting about 550 to 600 to make it to Saturday’s ceremony, according to Brian Zeringue, director of the public information division of the Georgia Department of Veterans Service.

The public is also invited to attend the event to help honor the veterans in attendance.
