COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) -  Veterans Day 2013 Monday included observances at American Legion Post 52 in downtown Coldwater with the Legion’s drill team taps and salute ceremony along with the comments of the featured speaker, Post Commander, Retired Sgt. Major Michael O’Brien, who served in the Army from 1968 to 1993. O’Brien used the occasion to urge the audience to bring in more veterans from the community to become active in Post 52, where, according to O’Brien only a handful usually attend their meetings and in his words, “if you don’t care about your Legion, why should others.”

He also exhorted the Vietnam era veterans to not forget what it was like when they returned from war and make sure they have the backs of those young men and women coming back now from Afghanistan, encourage them to join the legion and remind them the Post can help in obtaining assistance and direction from the Veterans Administration
