Vietnam veteran counts his blessings

With 11 grandchildren, Tom Bayer, 70, has never lacked for something to do on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

"My grandkids always have things going at school for that," said Bayer, a Marine who served in Vietnam and received a Purple Heart.

But this year will be different. The parishioner at St. Anthony of Padua in High Ridge plans to attend the Veteran's Day Prayer Service on Friday, Nov. 10, at Bishop DuBourg High School, his alma mater.
