KINGSTON, N.Y. -- The Warrior Weekend participants weren't the only veterans in Kingston this weekend. The group "Veterans Honored For His Glory" held a ceremony at Dietz Stadium Saturday as the culmination of three days of events called "God and Country."
The events honored veterans from World War II through the modern conflicts in the Middle East. Organizers said they were particularly focused on veterans of the Vietnam and Korean wars, who they said never got the homecoming they deserved.
"It's like putting an end to a miserable time for me, but at the same time I'm proud of what I've done and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's one of the best things in my life, this happening here," said Vietnam Veteran John Beaman.
"It's wonderful. It's good to be honored this way. It's my birthday in three months and I'll be 100 years old and I never expected anything like this," said World War II Veteran Steven Patrick Noonan.
Veterans also talked to students at Saugerties High School this week and took part in a conference where they shared their experiences at war.
