Vietnam era vet thanks thoughtful Columbia store employee
By Daryl Branham
I had an interesting thing happen to me this week. I was at the Newcomb Oil Co. store across from Gate and when I came out, a Newcomb employee came up and shook my hand and thanked me for being a veteran. He said he saw my vet license plate and just wanted to thank me.
I served from 1971-1976 and this was a first for me. He said his sister served but had passed away. I did not participate in any war but I was a Vietnam War era vet, and had orders to go, but the de-escalation of the war had started and my orders were canceled.
I thank those who served and mourn for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Hug a vet or just shake his or hand.
- Daryl Branham
