Idaho Renames I-84 The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

The state of Idaho has found a concrete way to recognize Vietnam War veterans in a year that marks the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

On Tuesday, the state officially declared the I-84 highway in Idaho as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway.

“It goes further than a thank you. This really is an act of appreciation,” said Capt. Henry Parker, commander of the Idaho Department of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
