Some of you have known members of our armed forces who gave their life for our country, or others who came home disabled after fighting and serving bravely. We should remember that many of our brave veterans are getting on in years. Few opportunities remain for us to say thank you to these heroes and to let them know of our admiration and gratitude for their many sacrifices.
The second Saturday of November we will have a chance to honor veterans from throughout Central Virginia in the Gordonsville Annual Veteran's Parade. Our hope is to have as many veterans as possible marching and riding, along with their supporters honoring them with patriotic music and floats in the parade. Come and feel that patriotism, and be sure to bring your children to enjoy the pageantry and to instill the values of respect and honor that has made this country great.
