WASHINGTON (WAOW)--"Let us never forget."

"It's hard to explain. I can't really find words to explain it. It just feels great with all these old guys."

"It's really exciting for me and great that I could make it off work and come support her."

"When you actually meet a person that was there and realize that these people actually lived this, did this and had this happen to them, I think it makes it even more special."

"And they all ask me what did you do over there? I say, I can't say nothing but I helped free the French from the Germans."

"This is...this is beautiful here."

"Seeing my dad sitting there with all these amazing men and women, it really tugged at my heart strings."

"I had to look at him twice. I thought he was somebody else. I was surprised as heck when I saw him here."

"The whole impact of the Holocaust during World War II should never, ever, ever be taken lightly. We should teach our kids about that."

"I want to cry happy tears because it's such an honor to know you all."

"It's pretty incredible what they have done for our country. If anybody gets the chance at something like this it's truly amazing."
