Armed Forces Day at MCLB

May 16, 2003

Albany- The Albany Marine Base's Staff NCO club hosted an Armed Forces Day Celebration. Men and women from all branches of service came together to listen to music and enjoy the company of others.

Older South Georgia veterans were invited to share with the younger generation. "The wars are different and the jobs are a lot different from when I was in. It's a lot more high-tech, so it's hard to compare other than the fact that the comradery is a little bit more tighter, and they watch eachother's back more," says Vietnam veteran, Anthony Rawls.

Still, Rawls says he wouldn't mind going back to war just to experience the comradery with the younger generation.
