Rochester, N.Y. - Inside the Port Of Rochester, Taps played to honor veterans who lost their lives, serving our country.
Chris Castellon played the solemn hymn remembering his own two grandfathers who served in the military.
He said it's tough not to get emotional as our veterans are honored and remembered. "When you see true American heroes standing up and being counted, the emotion gets to you," he said.
Bob Liming was just 19 when he fought in the Battle Of The Bulge at the end of World War II.
Many of his friends did not make it home. That's what Bob remembers on this day.
"I lost so many of my best friends, it's chilling to think about things like that," Liming said. "I'm happy we won, but it's not the kind of thing you wanted to be in."
John W. Brown Junior just turned 90 years old. He is proud of his service. He fought during World War II and the Korean War.
Brown was wounded climbing a hill during the Battle of The Bulge. He received a Purple Heart and other medals of honor for his service.
But he doesn't wear the medals or talk about them. "He's been one of the silent veterans for many years," his wife Jean said.
John did tell us he finally had his medals framed because when his sons were little, they gave them away to their friends.
