NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) – Craig Ranch Regional Park will be the site of a community extravaganza this Saturday, September 9, honoring our valley’s service members, veterans and first responders. Officials from Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases are celebrating the sacrifices and dedication of the men and women who serve our city and country. There will be food, music, vendors and lots of good vibes.
As part of the “Thank You Celebration,” free lunch will also be provided to all attendees with a valid first responder, military or veteran identification.
A special “Welcome Home” tribute will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War and honor Vietnam veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice. Also Vietnam veterans will be presented with 50th anniversary commemorative coins.
