Meigs County rocks for our troops, veterans

June 3, 2014

Dear editor,

I would like to thank Charlene Hoeflich and staff for a wonderful job of covering all the veterans events, graduations and Bikers Memorial Run. I personally want to thank thank all veterans and military for serving and defending God, country and freedom.

Please remember all of them in your prayers and be sure to thank them for serving. They need to hear that.

I want to say, recently I was blessed to work with Drew Webster Post 39 American Legion for our Poppy Donation Drive. Our auxiliary is a good group of ladies helping veterans and families. It was great talking with all the people, veterans (hearing their stories) and the bikers on Sunday. Thanks to all these good people we exceeded our goal and will be able to buy more stuff for our local veterans, hence all the money stays in Meigs County.

Thanks to all our great workers for making this a successful project.

I’m proud to be an American, live in Meigs County and to come from a big military family. May God bless all of us and keep us safe!
