More than 100 people came to shake hands and thank them for their service. Both active members and vets agree, that simple gesture makes it all worth it.
"It's very important to look back and look at the millions of lives that have been sacrificed and families that have been sacrificed for the veterans of this country over the last, especially the last hundred years," Major Marine Chris Bourbeau said.
The UI will continue to honor vets Monday with a wreath-hanging at the campus cemetery.
