Thank you to Jim Chappell, Commander, American Legion Koca Post 39 for inviting me to be the guest speaker at this year’s Reed Township Memorial Day Program. It was a beautiful morning in Braidwood – such a lovely ceremony and crowd, and the Reed Custer HS musicians were fantastic!
I also had the pleasure of attending the Kankakee County Veteran’s Council ceremony on the courthouse lawn. Thank you for allowing me to participate in the ceremony and say a few words to the crowd. Always a pleasure to listen to Judge Marlow Jones. Another lovely ceremony to honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Thank you to all those who made it possible!
God bless our fallen service members, God bless our Gold Star families, and God bless America
