To the Valley News:
Once again a big thank you is in order for the people of the Willsboro and Essex churches for the great Veteran’s Day dinner provided to honor our area veterans. The meal was spectacular and the program very meaningful.
This year our Korean War veterans were honored. The speaker of the evening was James LaForest, a Korea veteran himself, who used his talk to remind us that even in the most trying of situations, humor can save the day and he concluded with a most serious acknowledgment of the honor being given to the veterans by the community.
A special thank you to Rick Sayward who passed out hats to our honored Korean veterans and spoke about the revival efforts for our local American Legion post and also to Robin Belzile who spoke about the veterans flag program.
As a veteran myself it is always great to know that our community stands behind those who served the nation and those still in uniform around the world.
Thank you to all!
