Must watch video: Never too late to say welcome home

My older brother served in Vietnam and needless to say, his return home from the combat zone was hardly celebrated. I remember him hanging up his Marine Class Alphas, the green uniform, way back in the closet. I used to take it out and look at it, dreaming of the day when I could possibly wear a military uniform. Today we take the time to express our gratitude to our combat veterans, but as you look at this video, remember, it is never too late.

When you see a Vietnam veteran, look them in the eye, and simply say, “Welcome home.” Those were the two words many of them never heard years ago. Have your moment of truth.

Welcome home, brothers and sisters!
