Default Military Veterans (a series)

We're loosing our WW II veterans at an alarming rate...in that they are in their 80s or older. I attended a Veterans Day tribute on Thursday and captured a number of veterans -- which I'd like to share here. NOTE: I'll be posting more over the next few days, so revisit. Thanks.

That chaplain would appear to be a "code-talker" too wouldn't he? Going by the pin on his hat.

All I know is that he is a Catholic priest and he gave the invocation at the ceremony here in Huntington Beach.
