I personally wish to thank all who put together the 2010 Veterans Day parade and ceremony. A special honoring of the Korean War vets was very appropriate. “They are not forgotten.” As for myself, I am just an “Old Vietnam Vet” who gets choked up over all the attention. I especially want to recognize all of the units that participated in the parade, the great local bands and the many speakers at the ceremony afterwards. It was great meeting with the many vets from our nation’s different wars. The food and hospitality was great. And last but not least, I must say a special thanks to a young man named Jeremy who presented me with a “thank you” card for my service. It is really heart-warming to see that so many of our young people are strong in their support and patriotism. Paul T. McDaniel, Auburn
