Visiting The American Legion

We had a really wonderful experience when we visited the American Legion today. In honor of our fallen soldiers we were invited to a reading of The Poppy Lady, which is the story of how the red poppy became the symbol to honor and remember soldiers. In addition, we had the opportunity to meet a veteran and witness a POW-MIA chair of honor ceremony. We were also given the opportunity to look through scrapbooks and read about Private First Class, Steve F. Grubb, who lost his life in the Vietnam War. The scrapbooks were lovingly pieced together by his wife, Gladys. It was an honor to be there today.
