Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to take pictures of the monument that I built when I was 17 for my Eagle Scout Project to thank the men and women of our military. I never thought that anyone outside of our little town would see it. On the back of the monument there is another plaque that has a list of all the people that donated their time or services to make this possible. I would like to thank them for all they did....
When you see a veteran, thank him!!!
