Letter to the Editor 11-1-13

Dear Editor,
 The American Legion Auxiliary continues to stand united and unashamed for God and Country. We are true Patriots. We defend our faith, we love liberty, we are promoters of unity, champions of peace, protectors of democracy, and guardians of all things sacred to life. We have committed ourselves to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Regardless of our party preference or political stance, we lift up our Sovereign God and our fellow Americans through “serving others not self.”
 The American Legion Auxiliary continues to serve United States military veterans and soldiers living near and far. Through good will and encouraging messages sent to veterans, to military service men and women, and to their families, hearts are lifted with hope for a brighter future. Encouraging the elderly, especially veterans, their widows and their families, gives them a sense of value. Educating youth with Patriotic programs inspires and instills thankfulness for freedom’s cost.
 As we approach Veterans Day, November 11, the American Legion Auxiliary Units encourage you to thank a veteran, send a greeting to a soldier, attend a Veterans Day event; and pause on Veterans Day to remember with gratitude our freedom in the “Land of the Free; in the Home of the Brave.”
                      Thank you,
                      Laura Christensen, secretary
                      Unit 76, Concordia
