World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans were introduced and received medals and flowers.

"I think if they can lay their lives on the line for us on a daily basis and in wars, or even non-war times, do their service for their country and for us, we should be able to stand in unison together, with them, for them," noted Cheryl Klimkewicz, a veteran's daughter.

The ceremony was sponsored by Geri-Care Pharmaceuticals.
