From Rush’s NewsRounds in July 1991:
The event began with the posting of colors and a wreath-laying ceremony in memory of those who gave their lives in war. Speakers included Don Oder, vice president and chief operating officer of the Medical Center; William Maran, northern division supervisor of Veterans Affairs; and Jim Balcer, veterans’ liaison from the Office of the Mayor.
Veterans celebrated the day by wearing combat fatigues and enjoying shared stories of having “been there.”
