    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.

    Perhaps this is 30 or 40 years too late, but thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

    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.
