What a wonderful Veterans’ Appreciation Dinner at the Cable Road Alliance Church.
The featured speakers were retired Sgt. Major Doug Reed, a Purple Heart recipient, and his wife Jane Reed. Sgt. Major Reed was wounded by a RPG in Afghanistan in 2010. They had such great testimonies.
The delicious dinner was excellent along with the beautiful voice of Lauren Smith.
Many thanks to the sponsors: Tom Ahl, WLIO-TV, WTGN, WTLW-TV 44 and many others. A big thank you to Pastor Tim Lewis, Shawnee Boy Scout Troop 777, the church and its volunteers.
I am proud to be an American and a United States Navy veteran.
