Even though Thursday is a lot of fun. Everyone needs to remember the importance of this holiday.
"1972 Vietnam, over but not forgotten," said Stewart.
"And our freedom that we have to speak and to worship and to walk and talk and whatever our freedom its
really our freedom. That's what the flag stands for," said Woods.
