My heartfelt desire is to thank everyone who remembered the veterans. It was truly a special occasion as we saw so many businesses and individuals thanking veterans for their service. It made me feel especially good when I asked the congregation at Liberty Baptist Church to stand up, come forward, shake hands and thank the veterans who were standing at the front of the church at our 11 a.m. service. I watched veterans from the Vietnam and Korean wars have tears in their eyes as not one person remained seated. Young children along with older adults who could barely keep their balance decided that it was an absolute must to thank these men and women.

They are heroes in my book. God bless and many thanks go out to our veterans.

Rev. Ewing M. Marietta
