ST. CLOUD - Over 100 people gathered at Lake George for a Vietnam Veterans Memorial Service on Saturday.

Vietnam Veterans with America Post 290 and members of the St. Cloud Vietnamese community both took part in the ceremony.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis gave a speech at the event, stressing the importance to honor veterans in Central Minnesota.

"All of the things that we have an opportunity to have is because of the freedom and sacrifice of the men and women we honor today," Kleis says.

The service took place at the St. Cloud Vietnam War Memorial, located right off Highway 23 at Lake George.
