Ceremony honors missing Texans from Vietnam War

Texans still missing from the Vietnam War were honored Saturday morning. The ceremony was held to show that they will never be forgotten.

Ceremonies to honor those missing from Vietnam are taking place all over the world, from military installations, ships at sea, and state capitols.

It is traditionally observed on the third Friday in September each year. Here in Austin, the ceremony was held at the Texas State Cemetery, and it was organized by Vietnam Veterans of America - Capitol of Texas Chapter.

The ceremony included the Patriot Guard, a group of motorcyclists that line up by the family of the missing to ensure they aren't disturbed.

The ceremony also included traditional military honors, as well as readings of the 105 Texas military personnel and three civilians who are still missing in action.
