Letter: Thank you for Blue Star banners

To the Editor:

The city of Crystal Lake and Mayor Aaron Shepley, thank you so much for making the Blue Star Banner Program possible. What a way to support our troops currently serving. We’ve been Crystal Lake residents for over 25 years, and both of our children are serving with the Marines.

My daughter, Sgt. Lanaski, who was deployed in Kuwait, graduated from Prairie Ridge High School in 2015. This is the only home she knows, and it is wonderful to see her recognized with this honorable program. Every time we pass her banner on Route 14 it brings such pride. We are so thankful for living in such a supportive caring community.

Debbie Lanaski
