Town and Country restaurant was the scene for the more than 40 tear-filled faces, who listened as Othellious Cato, recited his oration, "A Warrior's Prayer: The Courage of our Servicemen."

Retirees and other attendees, at the monthly Retiree Breakfast, sat in total silence as Cato, a 2014 graduate of Westover High School, Albany, Georgia, guest speaker and orator, delivered a monologue, which he wrote in honor of the country's servicemen and women.

"I came to use this speech to show the proper honor and respect to those who have served to ensure our safety," the young man said. "I think that it's very important to show gratitude to those Marines, to let them know that we respect them and that we remember them for their service."
