Veterans Salute

To the Editor:

Re: The sixth annual Veterans Salute.

Once again, we would like to thank Prairie Isle and the numerous sponsors for this special day for veterans of all conflicts. What a great day it was for all.

Special thanks to the many different fire departments that volunteerd as spotters. They are good people and a lot of fun. They simply made the day. Without these people, the day would not have been as much fun. They all helped so much, and joked around with us, and thanked us for our service. They were the icing on the cake.

No matter what war, we always must honor the young men who fought for our flag and country. Thanks so much to Prairie Isle and every one involved to make this special day happen.
