Kudos to the Heinzen Ditter VFW Post 5903 and the American Legion Post 394 for sponsoring an excellent Veterans Day Program on November 10, 2018. The parking lot was completely full. PBYR was honored to help promote the event.
All the speakers highlighted poignant reflections about America, such as clarity of purpose, mission, respect and the importance of character. I reflected on the comments about the dedication and time commitment of the Veterans that volunteer to serve with the Fort Snelling Rifle Squad and those that serve as a Color Guard to meet the numerous requests for assistance at burials and representation at special events. Veterans do us proud by their example and dedication! Congrats to VFW Commander Jim Heimerl et al in making this program a success.
