MARQUETTE, MI--   On day one of his #RideMI motorcycle tour, U.S. Senator Gary Peters honored those at Marquette’s Jacobetti Home for Veterans who served in the Vietnam War.

A former lieutenant commander in the Navy Reserve, Peters presented Vietnam vets from the U.P. with commemorative lapel pins in recognition of their service. The ceremony was held with the assistance of Vietnam Veterans of America Post 380.
