Three Peoria Rotary Clubs met to honor veterans today.
Active and veteran military members had lunch today at the Gateway Building.
They heard from guest speaker Scott Altman, who is a US Navy captain test pilot.
Approximately 250 service men and women were at the lunch.
“The Vietnam veterans are certainly getting respect that they deserved then, but we're also seeing resurgence in America is support of our military today, the young men and women that are serving. And that's a great thing to see” said Fritz.
“It just honors me that I can be in front of the public and put on this show for the previous members that are here, the World War II veterans, and all the other service members that are here today,” said Wheeler.
There was also a military tribute with color guard from the 182nd Air Wing.
