COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Cochise County is looking for the public's help with its Vietnam War Commemoration program. 

The county was accepted in October 2013 to the U.S. Vietnam War Commemoration Program.  This federal program is a partnership between local governments, private organizations and communities across the U.S. to remember the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. 

According to a recent Cochise County release, it will be hosting two events each year for the next four years to honor and thank the county's Vietnam veterans. 

The County is asking for the public's help with what sort of events to host.  For those who know a Vietnam veteran and have ideas on how to honor them, the board is asking them to call (520)432-9200 or email ideas to board@cochise.az.gov.   

Board members are also looking for photos from that era from veterans and their families.  The photos will be scanned and returned if originals are provided.  The board would also like stories that they will post on the Cochise County Facebook page.
