Ceremonial welcome home: Leeman Able, a Shoshone Paiute, stands at the Washington State Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Olympia during a ceremony to mark Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. Under a recently passed law, March 30 has been designated for that day, and members of tribes and veterans groups came to the memorial Friday for a ceremony that included native songs, a drum circle and a bugler playing taps.
