Brothers-in-arms in Phoenix gathered over the weekend in a pre-Memorial Day commemoration of those American Indians who served in the Vietnam War, those held as Prisoners of War, or listed as Missing in Action—and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

More than 42,000 Native Americans served in the Vietnam Era, according to the Veterans Administration, and over 90 percent were volunteers.  “As service members, Native Americans have shown exceptional valor and heroism on battlefields from the American Revolution to Iraq and Afghanistan,” according to Commander-in-Chief President Obama.
