Had a great time yesterday at LST-325 Veterans Breakfast event on the tank deck. Got to meet some great veterans and hear some great war stories. We were able to hand out 6 LST ribbon/ metals Thank You For Your Service to 6 WW II attending veterans. At the LST-325 tour mission to Nashville and Clarksville TN, we handed out 35 such ribbon/metals to WW II veterans who took a tour of the LST. Its great to see their face lite up when we give them these ribbon/metals and salute them and thank them for their service. The Greatest Generation, we will not see their lot again. Take care SARGE
And it was good to see you, Sarge! Thank you for all you do! I was in the ward room, with those who could not do ladders. The simple gift of a breakfast is a small way to say thank you, but when it comes to the work feeding them, the Owen and the Galley Crew and the Funeral Home who donated the items to create the breakfast really go all out! The shared stories are the reward.
