The pinnacle of the Michigan C.A.R. annual banquet was the opportunity to recognize the Vietnam veterans who were with us as our honored guests. Each one received a plaque and certificate from C.A.R., and those who hadn’t already received their commemorative lapel pin got that, too. Our national president, Mackie Storage, and our National Vice President for the Great Lakes Region, Jake Shadinger (who was home on leave after completing boot camp!) helped with the presentations, and we had the support of two very capable pages.
