This Memorial Day, my husband, son and I honored our fallen soldiers and our country by attending a moving ceremony at American Legion Post 269 and AJ’s future school, Vera Ralya Elementary, in our Haslett community.
And what better way to show my respect for our troops — including my dad, a Vietnam War Veteran — than by joining the American Legion Auxiliary! I’m honored to now be a member.
After the service, AJ, Jason and I enjoyed a wonderful barbecue lunch. AJ loved his handmade red poppy flower, and I look forward to teaching him more about this important holiday when he’s old enough to understand. Thanks to the American Legion for putting on a great event for a great cause.
