Larry Beaudin has made it a point to thank fellow veterans for their service and welcoming them home, especially ones who fought in Vietnam.

He picked up what his son was already doing and one experience Beaudin had, made him do what he is doing now.

New Lenox had the Moving Wall in 2011 and Beaudin was Honor Guard, so he was in uniform and had his rifle with a chrome bayonet. Beaudin was in the 101st Airborne Division and Infantry Platoon leader from 1960-1963.
