"I passed out the 24 roses, inviting each veteran to place a rose on a grave of an unknown soldier, as these men are often overlooked and rarely receive flowers. The Survivors were honored to do so, some with tears in their eyes. Keep in mind that this was done on the opposite side of the cemetery drive, far away from the crew. It was completely solemn and quiet. Then one of the crew, who suddenly appeared on the edge of our private ceremony, loudly said, 'you guys need to be quiet. Keep it down over here.' It took everything in me not to erupt in anger at this man, yet I remained composed as to not disturb our somber veterans."
