Retired Marine and Vietnam War veteran Kenneth Pollack cries during a ceremony to honor two Vietnam War veterans Pollack served with, Friday, Sept. 20, 2013, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. Retired Marine Joe Cordileone was awarded the Silver Star Medal and retired Marine Robert Moffatt was awarded the Bronze Star Medal during the ceremony, 46 years after the two fought North Vietnamese army troops on a jungle hillside, and saw most of their unit be killed or wounded. Pollack took part in the battle that same day.
