Let's Salute Our Veterans

Seeing as how my eight-year-old son just sent a letter to Grandpa thanking him for his service to our country many moons ago, it is my pleasure to give a shout-out to the "Salute to Veterans" being held on Thursday, November 11 at 7 pm in the Chartiers Room of the Providence Point Retirement Community (near Our Lady of Grace Church).  All vets are welcome and the event will premiere a new video about Mt. Lebanon veterans.  Retired Marine Lt. Col. Jay Kopelman, author of two New York Times bestsellers on his experiences in Iraq, is the featured speaker.  This promises to be a worthwhile evening.

I'll be at the High School Evening Theater's performance of "Get Smart" at the same time (how did Thursday nights become so popular in Lebo?) but will be thinking about the fine men and women who have served our country so ably for generations, and still do to this day.
