(KGTV) SAN DIEGO - A local Vietnam veteran was recently honored decades after his service.  

The ceremony was a bittersweet one. 

Retired Navy Captain, John Cammall, is in hospice care. His son, David, said he will likely never leave his home. 

"He's been a great father," David said as tears fell and he shifted in his chair at the foot of his dad's bed. "It's hard to see him this way."

Hospice care cannot give you a fairytale ending but Elizabeth Hospice and some Camp Pendleton Marines did brighten one vet's morning.
