Poppy sale helps hospitalized veterans

To the editor:

Memorial Day has come and gone, but the memories live on. Who could forget what our veterans have done to keep America the land of the free and the home of the brave?

As a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 117 and the American Legion, there aren’t enough words to express our appreciation for the support we received for our poppy drive. In order not to forget anyone, we would like to extend to the business places who have contributed to this program for many years, a heartfelt thank you.

To everyone else who gave so much, whether it was a penny, quarter or dollars, this money will support hospitalized veterans and their families. So it is with a grateful heart we thank each and every one who gave so generously.

Rosemary Koeller and Armondo Llamas,

American Legion co-chairs
