Friday was National Vietnam War Veterans Day. There were events held in Portland and Vancouver.

One veteran told KATU the attitudes about his service have changed a lot in the last few decades.

"Even a lot of the younger generation come up to me and they see my hat and they thank me for my service, which is pretty amazing. I was really shocked to see that happen," said Bill Fuhrer.

Vietnam vets were honored for their service and given commemorative pins.
