The Plaque presentation with Mrs. Eleanor Moskal.
Retired Col. Douglas Lengenfelder - Survivor of the Pentagon Attack.
Bill Venet - (Johnny Cash) - Song of the Patriot - Bill was so emotional - that at times he couldn't get through the words - so the crowd as one - started clapping in unison - it was one of those special, unscripted moments. I would have recorded a clip of his audio - but he didn't use a mic and the sound quality was too low.
The Raising of the Flag.
