July is a month to remember

Remember what?

July 4th is very significant in American history. It marks the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted (July 4, 1776) and the United States officially became a free nation. American citizens celebrate America’s birthday with festivals, parades, fireworks, barbecues and other festive activities... but,

We should not forget the sacrifices our soldiers made for this Freedom.

  Our next meeting will be on Thursday, August 1st.  I will send you a reminder of that meeting on the Monday prior to the meeting.

 

We, the leadership team, would like to take this opportunity to let you know what we have done the first six months of this year:

 

We helped the spouse of a veteran with a $350.00 check toward the removal of a tree on her property that the HOA required she remove.

 

Several of our men went to Kentucky to help Samaritan's Purse work on rebuilding homes.

 

A few of us helped Jim Lindermayer's organization in counting homeless veterans for the county.  Jim, as you know, is head of the Cherokee County Veterans Program.  Last year we gave Jim a $15,000 check towards the shelter being built for our homeless veterans.

 

We are the ones who put the flags out in front of the church on Memorial Day, July 4th and Veterans Day.  We also do the missing man table in the church lobby on Memorial Day.

 

We also have a Funeral Team that attends all the veterans funerals.  They do a presentation that includes a certificate for the spouse. The team has already done several so far this year.

 

We Care Boxes - we packed and shipped 26 boxes to go to our military serving overseas.  We thank all those who assisted in making this possible.

 

 We always give a $250.00 donation to our guest speakers who are part of a veteran organization.

 

In December of last year, we gave $500.00 to Kim Scofi's organization United Military Care for Christmas shoe box gifts sent to the children of those veterans serving overseas.

 

Recently, we donated 120 backpacks for the children of the local  Georgia National Guard.

 

We do our best to support our veterans and their families.  Just to let you know we receive our funds from the generous members of our church.  We are very thankful for their donations.

 

If you would like to donate, we would certainly appreciate your donations.

 

Have a wonderful July and remember to take a minute to thank our military and their families for their service and sacrifice. Our flag does not fly because the wind blows it - it flies with the last breath of every soldier who died defending it!  God Bless America!

To follow a message from a soldier's mother, Ms. Jamie Barber, who I met at the post office while sending out other WeCareBoxes. Her son along with other Guardsmen are presently guarding the American Embassy in Iraq:

Gene. Good morning. Zachary received the boxes today. He told me to tell you thank you and God Bless. He was very happy. I want to also thank you and your wife for the great service that you do for the military serving our country. Jamie
