It's not everyday you meet a hero...but the front room in the Broadview Assisted Living was filled with heroes celebrating the upcoming Veterans Day.
89-year-old, Carl Newland enlisted himself as a Marine the day after world war II was declared.
He was shot five times during his tour.
Newland now has two purple hearts which he earned at the famous "Battle of Guadalcanal" in the South Pacific Islands.
Another hero living in Tallahassee, is 91-year-old Byron Clark.
Clark, like many who fought for our country was drafted.
Clark saved Air Force memorabilia over the years and showcased them for the ceremony.
There were many more servicemen in the room.
One man insisted that he stand up during the pledge of allegiance and during the star spangled banner.
The men were honored with certificates and pins from the staff, they also sang patriotic songs.
The women who supported their husbands were honored as well.
