All of your thank yous are very much appreciated, and I think I can speak for all active and vets out there. We are so used to being humble about it, but it does mean a lot to feel appreciation every now and again.

If you want an insight into how a hero thinks, listen closely to what Sal Giunta says at the end of the video about who his recognition is truly for.

From today's ceremony in our city.









The traditional wreaths were laid by all the services and civic groups.



Least we forget those that could not be with us today.

They said that America could never be defeated except from within. America would not recognize this emergence when it came, because it would be the alteration of the young minds, the minds of OUR age group's children. They have taken down the 10 commandments from public buildings, liberalized the stomping on and burning of our flag, become immoral with our values. That behavior which was never accepted in mainstream that was only what was whispered about now has "pride parades" and we are FORCED to accept it. A government which was once for the people is gone. We have a society that works for the government - a machine full of corruption, power struggles and espionage. Things that you would only see in movies has become our new reality. Being well over 60, we all know these things but where do we go from here. We have neither the strength nor the lifespan to fight it. We can only trust that we raised our children with enough spine to eventually put a stop to it. The cover of Newsweek a while back said that we are all now socialists. Isn't that just surrendering? Those of us on this thread that are military veterans, combat vets or era vets took an oath to defend this country from all threats, both foreign and domestic. I know I was not released from my oath. If I am mistaken, please, someone tell me so!
HOORAH!

Great weather Ken. Nice to get out and pay respects to the ones that went before me. Also got to meet a lot of friends in the community. I do quite a bit of volunteer work so all the City Council members know me.

The laying of the wreaths is a very moving part of the ceremony. Hard to wipe back the tears when the rifle salute and Taps is played.

I lost a few friends in Vietnam.
