Veterans, families gather at River Market

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - People who served in the military are being honored at Veterans Day events around Arkansas.

On Monday, Gov. Mike Beebe, a veteran himself, joined city and state leaders, veterans, and their families at the River Market Pavilion in downtown Little Rock.

Beebe singled out Vietnam veterans, who in some cases drew a hostile response upon their return from the war. The governor said it's important to give Vietnam-era veterans the honors they didn't receive when they got home.

"I was captured in Germany in September of 1944 and liberated in May of 1945. I was in two or three different camps," said Winston Metheny, a WWII army veteran.

In the invocation, Chaplain Jack Ryan noted veterans are beset by problems ranging from traumatic stress to survivors' guilt.

About 200 people heard the governor say that people should express their gratitude to veterans for fighting for the nation's freedoms.
