Former Georgia U.S. Sen. Max Cleland was in Tallahassee Friday.
Cleland, a Vietnam veteran who lost three of his limbs in combat, greeted veterans and scouts in Tallahassee's Peck Park.
Max Cleland says, "It gives the nation a time to pause and reflect on what those who have been in harm's way really mean to us. I think certainly it's time to pause and reflect on the fact that we have young Americans in harm's way today, at this moment, and we need to keep them in our thoughts and prayers."
Cleland stressed to the crowd how critical it is to give servicemen and women thanks and support when they come home.
He was in town to endorse Jim Davis for governor.
