There are 486 flags standing tall and proud around our local courthouse square. The men and women who have served in our armed forces have come together this very day to celebrate one another in grand style. They shared breakfast and good camaraderie to begin their day. They had lunch, compliments of the local school. Some of the vets in our area were invited to share their stories with school children. Tonight, when the flags are put to bed, there will be a meal for those who helped with this monumental task.
If you are a veteran or are currently in the military I wish to thank you for your service.
Here's hoping YOU have the opportunity to find tangible ways to thank any veterans who might be in YOUR midst today.
Only in America can we have the freedoms we do and we are grateful for those who have defended those freedoms.
The Post Office and Banks are closed today. No business transacted there. We shall follow their lead and spare you any commercial message.
God Bless America!
