As a Vietnam Veteran, my hat is off to Dan O'Rourke and KTSM for this story. I especially appreciate the dignity Dan gave this report. These men deserve the respect and honor that Dan and your station showed them.

Thanks again. You guys are a class act!

What a classy and dignified thing to do for these American veterans who so often are sadly ignored and forgotten. May they all rest in peace.

Thank you for your service and bravery to keep the United States of America free. I salute you. Rest in Peace. Thank you to the funeral homes who assisted in honoring these men. God bless you all and Ft. Bliss.

Thank you for your service to our great country and THANK YOU for fighting for our FREEDOM
Besitos
