Editor, the Advocate:
I wish to extend my deepest thanks to Mr. Manuel Rivera, Mr. Ron Kocian and his staff of volunteers and the people of Victoria for the "Parade That Never Was." We were treated like royalty! I met old friends and made new ones. I talked to Army, Navy and Marines and thanked them for watching our backs in Vietnam. After the parade, we were treated to a meal, and this time I didn't mind waiting in line. It was a great meal! Thanks again to all of you for "welcoming us home."
Raul C. Rodriguez, Victoria
