TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) - The city of Tullahoma is holding a Salute to Heroes concert and celebration to recognize the 40th anniversary of the return of troops from the Vietnam War.

The free event will be Saturday at the National Guard Armory in Tullahoma. Police Chief Paul Blackwell said the city thought it would be meaningful to recognize the veterans in the area and salute them for their service.

Leaders from the American Legion Post 43 and the Marine Corps League 1128 will speak. Blackwell said in a news release that veterans are encouraged to bring memorabilia from their service to the event to display.
