We had a great day at the Fort Worth VA serving cake; popcorn; apples and oranges.
A special shout out to American Legion Auxiliary 12th District's Past President, Shay Grannan Kuehner, and the choir for entertaining everyone with their songs. Their rendition of, "Proud to be an American" was right on point!
Another BIG "SHOUT OUT" to American Legionnaire Jim Bressert, Post 655, for supporting the Auxiliary by single handedly serving up the coffee.
On a personal note: I want to thank Betty Heedley, Lynda Sutton, Harriet Bressert, Jim Bressert and the other lady who worked with us for making this day memorable.
We went through two hundred (200) forks so we know we served at least that many and there were more. So many people on restricted diets enjoyed the popcorn and fresh fruit.
Betty Heedley "really" deserves the credit for making this event a success. She works circles around us!
As always we met and visited with a lot of our men and women veterans and had the opportunity to thank them for their service. It is always such an honor to hear their first hand accounts. For more pictures visit my Facebook page.
