LETTER: Thanks for local efforts for veterans


I am originally from Fort Stockton, but I left in 1963 to join the Air Force and when I retired after 24 years I settled in Austin!

This year I decide to attend the Veterans Day events in Fort Stockton! I really enjoyed all the events and the food! I got to see old friends and a lot of familiar faces, whose names escaped me since I have been gone over 56 years and only visited for short periods during those years!

I do want to thank the local Veterans Office, the American Legion Post 234, a local State Farm Insurance office, and the Walmart associates for their hard work in setting up the Veterans Day events and preparing the food! I think I might return next year and enjoy the welcome home feeling again!
