4th Annual Richland Rehab Veterans Day Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.--  About 60 veterans showed up at Richland Rehabilitation and Eagle Assisted Living for their 4th annual Veteran's Day Breakfast Wednesday.

The veterans shared stories of serving overseas and talked about how things have changed.  Two vets told us about how they were spit on and questioned when they got home from war, and how they're glad it isn't that way these days. 

Retired Sergeant Richard Westover says, "For many years, I never told anybody that I was a veteran, that I was in Vietnam, because it was easier that way.  So I'm glad to see that the youth today is standing behind and supporting all of our military people."

Retired Sergeant Alan Goodman explains, "When I got home from Korea, it was much like the Vietnam vets, like 'Where have you guys been and what have you been doing? Who cares?'  It's really nice to have us appreciated."

Staff at Richland Rehab say it's their biggest Veterans breakfast so far.
