As the culmination of our three-part Utah Vietnam War Stories series, KUED is hosting a Day of Honor for Utah Vietnam War Veterans tomorrow from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Utah State Capitol. The program in the Capitol Rotunda begins at 2:00 p.m. with the Utah Ceremonial Brass performing a musical prelude, the Combined Veterans Honor Guard and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Admiral Maxine Condor. Utah Governor Gary Herbert will make remarks as will KUED Production Director Ken Verdoia, Utah Department of Veterans Affairs Director Terry Schow. The program will be followed by a reception and the unveiling of KUED's Utah Vietnam War Stories Exhibit in the Hall of Governors. The event concludes with a Moment of Silence led by Vietnam Veteran Larry Weist at the Utah Vietnam War Memorial on the west lawn of the capitol against a backdrop of 364 7-foot flags, each representing a Utahn killed in action in the war. The "Healing Field" was donated by Colonial Flags. The event is free and open to the public.

When artists make exclusive print runs of their work, they sign and number each piece. A 1/1 mark represents a total original, something unlike anything else.
You are 1/1. Your story is uniquely yours, woven together from moments like the sting of your first skinned knee and the ache of your first crush. The warmth of another hand in yours and the weight of another head against your shoulder. The time you figured it all out and the time you realized you still had everything to learn.
For 85 years, O.C. Tanner has been commemorating local stories as singular as your own. As Utah’soriginal jeweler since Obert Tanner founded the company in 1927, the company has had the honor ofcelebrating countless milestones—births, graduations, engagements, promotions—each one distinct. It also continues to play a proud part in honoring the moments in between—those incredibly personal just-because occasions that make up the fabric of a life.
O.C. Tanner is 1/1. The company maintains exclusive relationships with the world’s most exceptional makers of jewelry and timepieces -- brands that aren’t available anywhere else in the state and designs with a lasting legacy. Its proudest distinction, though, resides not within its company, but with its customers. People with whom the company has had a long shared history that stretches back half a century. And people who are just beginning their stories with O.C. Tanner Jewelers. People like you.
You are an original, celebrate your 1/1 story at O.C. Tanner Jewelers.
O.C. Tanner Jewelers is delighted to support KUED through the underwriting of Downton Abbey.
