Thanks so much for the column and article with photo in the Sunday, June 1 paper. Garner is a patriotic community and our veterans are men and women who are proud to have served. As we solicited funds to build the Veterans Memorial, we constantly said that “not all of us can be veterans, but we can all be patriots.” That really holds true in Garner and the Garner Veterans Memorial, attendance at the Memorial Day Service and Veterans Day Service in November reflect our patriotism.
