Thomasville - Future veterans honor those who have served and continue to serve in the armed forces today. Veteran Leon Sculley says, "The younger generation, some of them, don't realize what it's all about, they've never been through it. But to know they're out here to back you up and support you, that's the main thing."

Supporting and thanking veterans for their freedom. Vietnam Veteran Robert Wiggs says, "It's a sacrifice that veterans made to make this country free today. If it weren't for Vietnam veterans, or Korea or WWII veterans, we wouldn't have the freedom today."

Leon Sculley received a special thank you for his part in protecting the freedom of The United States, when he was presented the American Flag.

Sculley says, "You feel like sometimes you feel like you're the only one around, makes you realize you've got a lot more comrades out here." And many others who support them, of veterans day.
