Vietnam Veterans Wave Flags to Remember Fallen Heroes

On a bridge over interstate 26 in Landrum Friday, four Vietnam veterans stood waving flags, in honor of their fallen brothers and sisters. Thomas Hall, Ronnie Ray, George Kaucher and Randy Crocker said they stand somewhere in the Upsate waving to vehicles and waving American flags hoping people will take a moment to remember those who lost their lives in 9/11.

“I hope they’re patriotic enough to blow and recognize what we’re doing and you can hear the horns blowing,” Randy Crocker said.

The men are part of the Military Order of the Purple Heart General Daniel Morgan Chapter 1781 so they are all purple heart recipients. Some members of their group fought in WWII and Vietnam.

“Last night we got together and decided who was going to be here,” said “George Kaucher.

They said this small act of gratitude is the least they can do to honor those veterans and fire and law enforcement personnel who are no longer with us.

“Proud to be here, number one to serve my country in this way and to remember the people who died in the twin towers. And to remember the people who’s still alive and suffering,” said Crocker.

The four veterans are part of the military order of the purple heart general Daniel Morgan Chapter. Their mission is to foster an environment of goodwill and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans and promote patriotism.
They also raise money for other veterans.
