Letter: Veterans parade is appreciated

On behalf of my fellow Vietnam veterans I wish to thank the city of Pigeon Forge and all the folks involved with the Welcome Home From Vietnam Parade and events held this past week.

It was so emotional being in the parade Saturday and seeing all the spectators including many fellow veterans. “Welcome home” was so good to hear!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you all.

I also want to take this opportunity to encourage all local veterans to make every attempt to attend one of the high schools’ tributes to veterans, usually held close to Veterans Day. The students and staff of each school work very hard to honor us vets. Please come, enjoy and be honored at one of these tributes.
