Dear Editor,

Chapter 25, Menominee County DAV would like to thank all the folks in the area that came out for Remembering Our Fallen National Tribute to those service members that have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11.

We would also like to thank all of our sponsors: Advanced Blending Solutions of Wallace, LE Jones, Stephenson National Bank and Trust, Dave Higley Family, Julie Derusha and JD Reality, Mike Dellisse, Menominee County VSO, Tony Graff and the entire Menominee City Council, MJB Industries for the lighting, Bay Cities Multimedia and “Our Town,” Becker Enterprises, Vet Center of Escanaba, American Legion, Post 39 of Marinette, Military 20-Year Club in Marinette, Brian Baldwin and the Triple C Riders of Menominee/Marinette and the Highland Clan MC Southern Chapter for getting the word out, offering moral support, for providing escort and help with setup and teardown. We hope all that came out enjoyed seeing these heroes, understanding more the cost of freedom, and went home with more appreciation for those serving to defend this great nation.

"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks." — James Allen, author, 1864-1912.
