A word of thanks to veterans


The average citizen today, myself included, does not comprehend what our country’s veterans have endured. I feel the importance to help the public become more mindful of these incredible people.

After touring the beaches of Normandy last summer, I heard, saw, and discovered firsthand the historical aftermath of WWII’s deadly battles. With Veterans Day just passed, I would like to take this opportunity to genuinely thank Michael Lynch and Nancy Arsenault for their service in the U.S. Army. I want all the veterans in our community to hear from me, an average citizen, how much I appreciate your work and sacrifices.

These stories of struggle bring awareness to the serious issues that so many veterans face today and highlight the need for more support from our community. Please join me and show appreciation and encouragement for the brave people who served our country and risked their lives for ours.
