Montgomery County Council President George Leventhal talks about the many ways the County is working to help veterans at the Oct. 24 event “Montgomery County Salutes Vietnam Veterans” at the Universities at Shady Grove. More than 800 people attended the first significant event the County has ever held to honor Vietnam veterans since the war ended 40 years ago. Other speakers at the event included, from left: U.S. Congressman Chris Van Hollen; retired CBS newsman Bob Schieffer, who served as the event’s host; and County Executive Ike Leggett.
