Veteran Administration Hospital Visit 11/11/07
A few Boy Scouts and volunteers answered the request to show appreciation to our sick veterans on Veteran's Day. The Boy Scouts were handed several packets which contained a simple thank you present. To us, the coupons and money contained in the envelopes were the best we could do. But the veterans looked past the tangible. They saw that they were still remembered. And this is what all veterans wish for. Whether they were from WW2, the Korean War, Vietnam, or the current war in Iraq, they all appreciated the few minutes taken to talk with them. As we left the building, a quote on the lobby wall summed up the experience, "The price of freedom is visible here".
