Albany- The American legion held a Memorial Service at the Albany Veteran's Park Amphitheater Saturday morning.

Dozens of World War II veterans from all branches of service were recognized during the ceremony.

"I think that America has turned around and they do appreciate the people who volunteered to defend our country, and I think that's great," says World War II veteran William Coward.

"It just feels good to be a veteran to me. I don't know how other people feel, but it makes me feel good because I know I had something to do with the reason why we are able to do this here now," adds World War II veteran Marshall Bailey.
