“A Salute to Vietnam Veterans” was the focus of the largest annual military Air Show in the country last fall at Marine Corps Air Station located in Miramar, San Diego. Emotion was taken to new heights during the pinning ceremony whereby the Pentagon's Vietnam War Commemoration Office awarded Vietnam Veterans a lapel pin formally thanking the military heroes for their service as well as extending each Vet a long-awaited, much-deserved "Welcome Home" that pretty much took your breath away.
