From Karl Little:
With all the events going on this weekend I want to make sure you know about The Veterans/Community Veterans Day Event at the Armed Forces Reserve Center tomorrow Nov 9th.
Here is a schedule of events. Guest speakers are Councilman Martin Heines and Congressman Louie Gohmert.
- 11:30-12:00 Socialization time. Snacks provided by VFW 7211 and Elks Lodge 215
- 12:00 Ceremony begins. Highlight of ceremony will be presentation of Bronze Star Medal to widow of WWII veteran.
OK now let me give you a little history of this event;
A while back I was able to get BSM for WWII widow but she had car accident and between hospitalization and rehab, we could not do a ceremony for presentation. A couple months ago she told me she was able to get around but is using a walker. I went to 136th MP BN and presented the opportunity and they seized it making it a Tyler Community event.
It is a chance to show their appreciation to a community that shows its appreciation to them every day. So if you are able to come tomorrow and you see one of the soldiers in uniform, thank them, not just for being there for our country but for being there for the community and those who served before them!
