"Soldiers are pretty humble. A lot of times they'll say they don't want the recognition or that's not the important part of it," said Capt. Sam Weber of Dover, commanding officer for the 237th. "It is a pretty good feeling seeing your congressional delegates up there saying some good things and kind words honoring what you have done. It does make a difference."
"We definitely couldn't do it without the support we get. It means the world to us," Spc. Roy Brigham of Worcester, Mass., said.
"Their schedules are so busy, for all five of them to show up and actually be here for this, it was pretty nice to see them," Griffin said.
