DECATUR -- Vietnam veterans got the chance to remember why they served this weekend when one of their own leaders was an honored guest. Pat McDaniel is a lifelong resident and councilman.

He served in the Vietnam War as an Army POW interrogator and was a part of the 101st Airborne. During Vietnam, the 101st Airborne Division fought in several major campaigns and battles.

McDaniel says the annual meeting helps him remember the good times and he hopes it continues.
