Posted: Updated: March 25, 2013 10:26 AM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam on Monday will pay tribute to Vietnam Veterans leading into the 40th anniversary of the withdrawal of troops.

Haslam will be joined by Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder and Vietnam Veterans of America Tennessee State Council President Barry Rice.

The proclamation and presentation event will be held at 2 p.m. in the Old Supreme Court Chambers in the state Capitol.

The event was scheduled to be held on War Memorial Plaza in front of the Vietnam Veterans Monument, but was changed because of inclement weather.

Tennessee became the first state to observe Vietnam Veterans Day in 2008.
