I'm announcing this and putting posters out everywhere I can. I'd like to see so many show up it would cause a a traffic Jamb. Those guys didn't get much of a welcome home when their war was over and I want to help all I can to get all we can to come out; not to hear me, but to show we give a damn about what they did and what they went through. It's a good way to say "thank you for your service". I don't think a lot of people know how much that can mean to a Veteran. It makes you feel like maybe someone actually gives a damn about those nights you spent in wet freezing foxholes, or when you had to soak your socks off or watched one of your friends walk till they fall. I never shot at anything that could shoot back but we were infantry and it was the roughest thing I've ever been through before or since. I want everyone to tell as many people as you can about the event on the 29th. I want them to know somebody actually gives a damn. They weren't properly welcomed home the first time, I don't want to see it happen again.
Thursday, March 29 will be the first celebration of the new Vietnam Veteran's Day. There will be a dedication ceremony of a statue honoring our veterans. Please come and honor our Veterans of the Vietnam War. They gave so much for us. I am honored once again to sing my song, “To My Brother Private William Jones” during this ceremony. Please come out and join us at 2:00 pm. at the Veterans Park between Washington and Jefferson Streets off Monroe. Come out to support those who fought for us to keep America the land of the free.
