Dear Editor,

A grand slam of thanks goes out to all who saluted our veterans with special programs on Veterans Day. Tributes in the local papers and heard on Bay City Radio stations were very rewarding and sincere. 

Business promotions thanking veterans in way of free breakfast, lunch or dinners made their day special. 

Cemetery practices, tributes and bugles made an everlasting memory in the minds of those who were attending. 

Special thanks goes to our school systems. Educators who spent time informing the students of the purpose of this day. The energetic students with smiles on their faces illustrated the enthusiasm in their “thank you” veterans program.

Finally, thank you to the vets who served in the Armed Forces or who are serving presently. We appreciate you. 


Steve Van Eyck

Commander of the Sons of American Legion Post 146
