Veterans praise LZ Lambeau events

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- After three days and thousands of visitors, LZ Lambeau officially closed Sunday afternoon.

Veterans and their families stuck around until the grounds closed at 3 p.m.

One of the biggest attractions was a giant map of Vietnam. Many veterans wrote messages on the map or stories about friends they lost in the war.

Veterans say they were moved by the entire LZ Lambeau experience.

Tom Timmins of Menasha said he'll remember "just the camaraderie of all the people here. You can tell there's just a closeness there's a bonding hopefully this continues."

"I lost two legs in Vietnam just below the knee and it put me back in a little more perspective for war and the way I felt when I came home," said Vietnam veteran Edward Fuhrman.

The day's final events included an ecumenical service and a flyover of the grounds by Vietnam era helicopters.
