His shout startled some at Thursday's New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery's Memorial Day ceremony, but his emotion connected with the veterans present, many in wheelchairs.
"That's what it is, when you're fighting in war, there's always someone yelling for help," he said.
"This is the first name I go to when I visit the (Vietnam) Wall," he said.
"I reflect with pride on the services and sacrifices of our service men and women," Cebrowski said.
"How blessed we are to have them serve us," Ayotte said. "We will count the days until they return, and we pray that they will return safe."
"We cannot and we must not forget," she said.
Lee, who was brought in a wheelchair to the ceremony by his son, said he had come hoping to see some old war buddies. He was disappointed.
But Lee said he appreciates all the good will toward soldiers and veterans he's seen in recent years.
"There was a time when we didn't see much of that," he said. "But now people come up and thank me for my service all the time, and that's really nice."
