A crowd of almost entirely all Veterans gathered in Eden Park Tuesday morning for the annual Veterans Day ceremony at the Vietnam Memorial.
The guest speaker was retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel Lou Sand.
"To be asked to participate in this ceremony," says Sand, "which is a long standing tradition here in the park meant a lot to me because I'm currently an employee of the park."
Sand served in Haiti, Bosnia, and twice in Afghanistan before retiring in 2012 after 30 years. He also earned a Bronze Star.
