Sheridan resident to attend funeral after remains of Vietnam vet discovered, brought home
SHERIDAN — For local resident Donna Roberts, it’s a simple story. It’s also one that has impacted her life and that she’s literally worn on her wrist, on and off, for 30 years.
It all started when Roberts was working as a bartender at the former Rendezvous Lounge and Liquor in Sheridan. A man walked in and, to strike up a conversation, she asked him about a red, metal bracelet he was wearing.
“I’d never seen one,” said Roberts, now a supervisor in the nutrition and food services department at the Sheridan Veterans Affairs Health Care System, in recalling that fateful night. “At the end of our conversation, he took it off his wrist and gave it to me.”
