Thank You For Your Service

I want to take the time this morning to Thank and say a prayer for the Veterans of the Vietnam War. I especially want to thank my youngest daughter’s dad for serving two tours. Today, we honor those veterans on the 1st Anniversary of National Vietnam War Veterans Day. I am proud to be an American and know the sacrifices so many have made to make my world a better place. Nationally, the Department of Defense will conduct a wreath laying ceremony with the Department of Veterans Affairs at The Vietnam War Memorial. For those here in Harleyville,  the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum in Charleston, SC, will conduct a ceremony to honor Vietnam Veterans. More info can be found on the Moultrie News website. Thank you for my freedom; God Bless.
