Lest We Forget.....


From the Quad County Coordinators:

This is our second year we have been able to combine resources and produce a Memorial Salute to those heroes who deserve to be recognized and commended for preserving our traditions, for serving and facing the unknown.   For fighting a war - any war - means the sacrifice of selfishness, the unity of diversion and attribution of such honorable qualities as courage, comradery and bravery that very few of us acquire through a lifetime, much less face and conquer on a daily basis.

Such a project as this requires an extreme amount of planning and preparation, hours of collecting data, transcribing and coding, photo work and cooperation among all.  It is always amazing to us, as coordinators, those that are dedicated, give without complaint, volunteer beyond their own selfish agendas - again and again  -  they are to us, our own heroes. ~
