NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — On the 100th anniversary of the first Veterans Day, Air Force veteran James Brehio ordered the veterans in attendance at North Adams' observances to stand front and center. 
 
"Turn around and face the audience and let them see you," said the National Executive Committeeman for the Massachusetts American Legion and keynote speaker at the city's annual ceremony. 
 
Brehio said it takes a special kind of person to enter the service and to recite the 72 words of the oath pledging their commitment to defend the nation against enemies domestic and foreign. 
 
"That they will obey or as well question they will fight the enemy in foreign countries. Countries a man may never have heard of, to defend the people they may never meet," he said.
