Vietnam veterans J week set by Mike Brubaker Vietnam veteran's week will be the final week in May said Marvin Peterson, assistant dean of the veteran office at Weber State. "The veterans ought to be honored and the American public made aware of the sacrifices these veterans did make because this was a different war; this was not like any other war," he said. To make the studentbody of Weber State more aware of the war, the veterans office plans to show a film entitled "Good Morning America." The film will be shown continually during the week in the Union Building. "A lot of students will become aware that this was a terrible war and that a high percentage of our students were in that war," Peterson said. According to Mr. Peterson, Vietnam veterans suffered more than any other wartime soldier. "A large majority, probably more so than any other war, suffered from severe physchological problems," he said. "We've had more divorces among Vietnam veterans than we've everhad before. We've had more drug problems than ever before. We've had more alcohol problems." . Because of the adverse effects the war has had on the veterans, President Carter felt that each community should honor these me, said Peterson. The week of honor was specifically planned to coincide with Memorial Day to help the public remember the veterans. "When the students leave to go on their Memorial Day weekends we want to give them something to think about," Peterson said. .

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
