A ceremoney was held in Devendorf Park today in Carmel-by-the-Sea in honor of our veterans.
Besides the usual beautiful address that reminds us all about those who gave their lives for our country, those who serve selflessly so that we can be safe, but there was also a reminder to thank those of an earlier war who did not get proper recognition at the time.
I was very moved by an appeal to the assembled crowd by a gentleman who reminded us that when Viet Nam Veterans came home, the returning troops were not well received by their fellow Americans, no one called them "heroes". In fact, they were ill treated and made to feel shamed.
HOW UNFAIR THAT WAS. AFTER ALL, THEY WERE DRAFTED.
I can still remember very young boys about 18 years old who were in the military coming to Hawaii on R&R.
They were old enough to fight and die, but they were not old enough to even buy a drink! (They would have had to be 21).
