I-25 Wyoming Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Highway

Just recently Interstate Highway 25 in Wyoming has been designated the Wyoming Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Higway.  This has been marked by signs, and also here noted on the overhead highway sign.  On the date this photo was taken, a parade for Vietnam veterans was being held in nearby Casper.
