Veterans appreciate community efforts

The Armed Forces Day Committee wishes to acknowledge all who helped to make the May 19 event a great success.

We appreciate the efforts of all who volunteered, made donations of time, food and money, and those who attended the event.

These include our guest speaker Major Harold Stitt, local officials, service organizations presenting wreaths at the Wall That Heals, providers of military displays and information.

The Jaffa Highlanders and Forest Hills Community Band provided music and Senator John H. Eichelberger Jr. and Larry English presented “Taps.”

The efforts of all veterans groups, Vietnam Veterans Chapter 967, local businesses, community groups and individuals were appreciated.

A special thanks to the James E. Van Zandt Medical Center for their cooperation and support and to all those who served and are serving our nation.

It was a special privilege to welcome local Korean War veterans.
