Special salute

November 13, 2009 - John D'Agostino
On Nov. 10, 29 special residents of the Chautauqua County Home were recognized.

All 29 served the United States — one even served as an ally in England — as veterans of World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War. The ceremony was put together by the Disabled Americans Veterans Charles Tinley Post in Dunkirk.

Veterans were saluted during the luncheon and thanked for their sacrifice and service.

I was humbled to be in attendance during the ceremony.

This group who put on the luncheon, including Ralph Moch and Michael Maslach, and those who were honored are proof that Veterans Day is every day in the United States.
