LANSINGState Sen. Joe Hune, R-Hamburg, participated in a lapel-pinning ceremony at the state Capitol on Wednesday.

Hune presented Alfred “Jack” Armstrong of Saline with a Vietnam veteran lapel pin. Armstrong served as an Airman first class in the U.S. Air Force.

“I am humbled and honored to present Mr. Armstrong with his lapel pin,” Hune said. “My commitment to serving our veterans is one of the most important duties I have as senator. It was a privilege to be able to participate in this important event.”

The pinning ceremony was a follow-up to the Thank You Michigan Vietnam Era Veterans event held at the Capitol on Oct. 8, which Armstrong was unable to attend. The pins honor all Vietnam veterans, whether they served in-country, in-theater, or were stationed elsewhere during the Vietnam War period.
