    Just like after WWII. THIS IS THE WAY ALL VETS SHOULD BE WELCOMED HOME!

    Thanks for sharing these photos. St.Louis is my hometown, lived there 38 years. I visited Soldier’s Memorial as a kid and it made quite an impression on me. Thanks to all the Vets, they serve and put their lives on the line for the rest of us.

    Tina I am so glad you placed these here. Today was so special. Now I am an old codger, so it gave me an opportunity to do more than thank our Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans. I got to thank a whole lot of Vietnam Veterans … everyone of them my personal heroes … it is a generational thing.

      The photos are just amazing. Thank you for sharing them. I look at the photos, young and old alike and I tear up just thinking about what they have been through. They each have a unique story, and life. I would love to learn about every one of them.
