GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Today, the Grants Pass Vets Center will hold a welcoming home ceremony for Vietnam veterans.

The ceremony will be at Riverside Park, 304 SE Park Street, Grants Pass, OR 97527, from 10 am to 2 pm. 

There will be plenty of service vendors from around the area for veterans to take advantage of.
