Tom Hohmann knows how to spot them and he spotted quite of few during Thursday’s
qualifying at the NHRA CARQUEST Winternationals in Pomona, Ca. He admits that
he’s become proficient at spotting a Vietnam Veteran. After all, he is
“A lot of times you will see people our age, 55
through 60, and they will see the POW-MIA logo and they’ll stop,” Hohmann said.
“They will look, not say anything and just take in the experience. It’s sort of
a trait you see a lot.”
Hohmann was one of nearly 30 Vietnam veterans who
made it out to the Auto Club of Southern California to witness the unveiling of
a car dedicated to them – the Vietnam veterans and the families of the POW-MIA
servicemen. The common phrase amongst these warriors was a simple, “Welcome
Home.” Melanie Troxel drives their high-horsepower welcome wagon.
That is the standard greeting among those who
served regardless of military branch, rank or area stationed.
