DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A ceremony in southwestern Ohio is set to honor area Vietnam veterans and mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.

The city of Dayton says the Saturday ceremony honoring Dayton-area veterans will include the addition of Gunner 3rd Class Gary L. Crampton’s name to a monument at the Old North Dayton War Memorial.

Crampton graduated from a Dayton high school. He was killed in action in Vietnam.
