Ernest “Pete” Peterson and Brad Kennedy’s friendship began on the 23-day boat trip to Vietnam while serving together in the 11th U.S. Cavalry. Many years later, Pete and Brad found themselves again side-by-side, this time at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC, where they reunite each Memorial Day and Veterans Day to be with those who understand and to honor their buddies.
