Govreau was a United States (U.S.) Army veteran who served in Vietnam where he worked in small arms repair. Pence served in the U.S. Navy as a pilot. Reid served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam as a combat engineer. Wendel served in the U.S. Navy on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Wasp during the cold war.

The presentation ends with a salute to honor the veteran’s service.
