Letter: Remember veterans, especially this week

Nov. 10, 2013 @ 01:40 AM

Dear fellow citizens:

Veterans Day, Nov. 11, is a special time to remember the men and women who have given beyond measure that you might have freedom. It is a special time to remember the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country and also to honor those who made it home safely from war, but have been changed forever due to what they gave. This week take time to visit veterans, call veterans to say thank you, send a card to let them know you care, say a prayer for veterans. Also, remember the families of veterans. Please join American Legion Auxiliary Unit 29 members and show your support for veterans at the Post 29 Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. in Lenoir. If you would like for the American Legion Auxiliary 29 members to visit a specific veteran please contact president Jaymee Smith at 828 217-1534.
