It's another Memorial Day and the veterans gather as they do most days, to remember the fallen. They meet at the old white, two-story house with the Corinthian columns and the wrap-around porch that sits on a curved bank above the San Antonio River. This is home ground of Veterans of Foreign War Post 76, founded in 1917 and the oldest VFW post in Texas. Here, the veterans gather. They joke, tell war stories and remember.
