Sonora, CA– Many Mother Lode Veterans are being thanked and remembered today for their past efforts.
Al Smith, a former Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps says he went to Vietnam and was in a forestry cognizance unit. He says his experience at Vietnam was unlike any other experience he has had and that it really made him appreciate the freedoms Americans have.
He adds that he thinks that many veterans who were volunteers then still choose to volunteer in various programs after they have served their country. Smith himself is heavily involved in the Kiwanis Club. In honor of Veterans Day; all postal services will not be delivering mail today.
