Thank you so very much for your support for our veterans, they sacrificed a lot for this wonderful
freedom we enjoy today. Many gave their lives, the 61 names engraved in our Monuement in front of the Court House, they were young men who never got to enjoy a family, kids, and grandkids. And it is still going on today in Afghanistan. We need to honor these young men and women. They are our real heroes.
