They are the recipients of our thanks

Brian Williams welcomes Medal of Honor recipients to NBC Nightly News.

We were visited today by a number of Recipients of the Medal of Honor.  They are in town for their annual visit to New York.  We have a board meeting tomorrow of the Foundation that supports them, and two dinners this week.  Believe it or not, these great men showed up here today (veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam) to thank us for our coverage of the Medal and its Recipients.  It left all of us overwhelmed.  We, of course, thanked them for their service.  I want to thank them publicly for making the trip.  It meant the world to us.

We hope you can join us tonight.
