Countless veterans attended the Veterans Day breakfast on Friday at the Civic. Among those were Vietnam veterans who were given a House of Representatives resolution by Rep. Bill Reiboldt.
"We appreciate everyone's service," said Reiboldt. "Veterans Day is just a reminder of what we ought to be thanking our veterans all year long. we really appreciate those that have served, given their time so that we can have the kind of life that we have."
Along with the breakfast, the Neosho High School Jazz Band played music and the high school's AFJROTC presented the colors.
"I served in the military just after the close of Vietnam and finished at the National Guard down in Anderson," said Reiboldt. "I enjoyed my time of service. I have the greatest respect for all of you who served in Vietnam and we are going to try to give you a little honor today."
A total of 13 Vietnam veterans were presented with the resolutions. Also, each one of them had the opportunity to tell the audience what branch of service they served in and their service time.
Addressing the young people in the crowd, Reiboldt said, "these (Vietnam veterans) are real life stories, this is not from the movies, these are real life people that experience the terrible side of war. And hopefully, none of you will ever have to experience what these guys had went through. Thank you veterans."
