Alaskansnowbirds said:I was there last year for Welcome Home. It was great. Many shows offer discounts to the vets. Most shows also had all the vets in the audience stand sometime during the show. We always got a warm round of applause.
BruceinFL said:I'm here now and all the shows we attended, in fact every place we went, acknowledged the military and vets. At the Jim Stafford show tonight he did the same thing plus he brought an Army captain just back from Iraq on stage for a standing ovation. A far cry from us getting spat upon when we came back from Nam. Also made a big to do about several survivors of a North Korean massacre of POWs iin the Korean War who were having a 50 year reunion and were in the audience.
