Response to Thanks You for Your Service

When our LST pulled into San Diego with a load of Marines returning from Nam a bus pulled up on the pier. A small contingent of a Navy Band got out and started playing music to welcome them. About half way through the second song it started raining. They got back on the bus and left. That was it. No media, no speeches, only a few gray buses to load them into. Fortunately the demonstrators were kept outside the gates.
