Letter to the Editor: Armed forces celebration

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints



Traditionally, Armed Forces Day celebrations are conducted at or near large military installations on the third Saturday in May. In previous years not all cities and towns participated. There just wasn't a direct connection.

That all changed Sept.11,2001. Today our community is blessed with outstanding men serving in uniform on our behalf in the war against terrorism. They are our neighbors and relatives who are members of the National Guard and Reserves sharing the burden of battling terrorism around the globe with active duty forces. They're also the wives and husbands, the children and family members who pray for the safe return of their loved ones every day they are deployed with their unit.

This Armed Forces Day, May 21, members of the American Legion will serve a special breakfast at the Price Elks Lodge, for these hometown heroes and their families from 9 to 11 a.m.

They are America's newest wartime veterans. We are honored to call them comrades.
