Tom Grosvenor Marine Corps Breakfast-- Part 2 All Stood

Tables were set up for World War II veterans and we had six in attendance as well as eight for the Korean War and quite a few Vietnam veterans.

We had the presentation of colors, the U.S. and Marine Corps flags, by the Lake County Marine Corps League and then the National Anthem.  Unlike so many of the NFL players, everybody stood except one man sitting at the Vietnam veterans table.  But he sure had an excuse.  He was in a wheelchair and missing a leg.

We then had the message of General Lejeune read and listened to the Commandant's message.
