Would like to shair this story with you. In 1991 after the Desert Storm mission, my home town of Owensboro,Ky. held a welcome home ceremony for us veterans of that war. The ceremony was held at English park with all the local elected officials and congresional leaders. Befor the ceremoy started, we were seated in front of the grand stand. We noted some Vietnam Veterans in the crowd, we had extra seats and invited them come join us. They did and it was the first time they were welcome home and their was not one dry eye in our ranks. In Owensboro Daviess County each year on 30 March we hold a special Vietnam Veteran Welcome Home ceremony at a local park. We are a band of brothers and never again should we allow our soldiers come home unwelcome or honored. Take care. SARGE
