One of the best parts of being an American Legion commander is having the opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of others. I have had the honor and privilege to be part of one of the presentation ceremonies, both commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War and, most importantly, recognizing those who served during that time. While the first ceremony took place several years ago, there were several who were overlooked in the recognition process. These men answered the call of their nation over half a century ago. Now it is time for them to be properly welcomed home by the country they so honorably served. We are forever in your debt and never again will one generation of service personnel forget the sacrifices of another. On behalf of the president of the United States and a grateful nation, welcome home!
