"It felt really good," Kivett said of seeing children at the event. "It's always nice to see the kids coming out for things like this and being taught these things. I thought it was pretty special."
Though he didn't see any combat while serving during the time of the Korean War, Kivett said he would've been ready to answer his nation's call no matter where the road would have led.
"Wherever they sent me, I went," he said. "I didn't do anything other than what I was asked to do."
Kasprzak, whose own father served during the Korean War, said he was proud of both his father's service and of the service of those like the veterans of Pine Harbour.
"I can tell you right here today that I am so proud to be right here in all of your presence," said Kasprzak. "Without your efforts, your dedication, all of you here, we would not have the freedoms we have today."
