Veterans and families honored

November 12, 2003
Albany- Veterans of all service branches were honored Wednesday for what they did for our country.

Servicemen recognized veterans, their wives, and widows who live at Morningside Assisted Living home. They presented each with a certificate and special pin. These men and women say they know we have our freedom today because they fought for our country, and many have fond memories.

"Since the war was over when I was there and I got to see a lot of damage that was done during the war," said John Olson, who served in the U.S. Navy. "It was quite an experience. I wouldn't take anything for the experience of it."

More than a dozen veterans were recognized during the program.
