A Letter From A Local Veteran

To all may fellow Vet’s and their Spouses:

I just want to say thanks for all you have done. I wish I could attend the annual Alliance Public Schools Salute to Veterans program that will take place Sunday, November 7 at 2 p.m. at the Alliance High Gym, but I have to work. My thoughts will be with you on this special day and I pray that all people in a America will do the same were ever they are.

And for all who might not really approve of the current world situation - it is your right as an American to do so, but remember you had a Father/Mother, Grandparents, etc. that did serve the country proudly to make the USA the best place in the world to live in for all for us.

Thanks again!

BM1 (SW) John M. Murphy
US Navy Ret. 1983-2004

  1. Yeah John!
    (Forgive our typing/spelling you would have laughed at our correspondence over the years neither one of us knew what the heck was being said we needed a key code to figure it out, smile...)
    Three years ago my husband was so proud of Alliance for honoring it's vet's he wanted to be there among them. He was determined to wear his dress blues. He gave up his burger's for salad's and twinkies followed him everywhere, but he resisted. He did it and looked good!

    Seriously, that Annual Salute to Retiree's was emotional for both of us. Bittersweet, we both were in awe of the gentleman there from WWII! My father served in WWII and Korea. His Father served in Korea and John's Uncle served WWII, Korea,and Vietnam (1939-1963, now 93 yrs. young) The front page coverage was a hit with us. Sue
