Students from the two schools marched behind the VFW and American Legion color guards to the courthouse to hear Lund's speech. A large portion of the crowd is shown in the above photo. Bob Riedel, Legion commander, served as master of ceremonies at the event and Mayor Bill Finn was introduced. Lund was emphatic in backing the role of the United States in Viet Nam and urged the backing of all citizens at home for the soldiers now carrying on the fight there. He blasted recent draft card burning incidents and other mob and individual efforts belittling the Viet Nam situation, but was just as warm in supporting peaceful demonstrations of all kinds dealing with the battle against Communism - saying the fight must be won in southeast Asia or we might be defending our own shores from the active advance of aggression. Many Algona business men and store employees were also present for the talk as most establishments were closed from 10-11 a. m. The crowd was undoubtedly one of the largest ever present for a Veterans Day observance here. The high school band closed the program with the National Anthem.
