Editor, the Advocate:
Area veterans were greatly pleased with all the attention they received. The parade was beautiful and was well attended. Then, there was a service after it was over. The Catholic War Veterans provided a wonderful barbecue lunch. Volunteers were very helpful. Area restaurants treated us like royalty, offering delicious food and wonderful service. Those were Olive Garden, Wal-Mart, Chili's, Texas Roadhouse, Texas Seafood and, of course, Golden Corral, which has done this many times. Patriotism is alive and well. You could just feel it. We owe our freedom to all these veterans and more so to the men and women who did not return. God bless Victoria and America.
