Black Receives Awards 40 years Late

Here's a good story about the Currahee spirit, 40 years later. Currahee Roger Black earned a few awards back in June 1970 while serving with the 506th Infantry. He finally received them on November 13, 2009 courtesy of U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards and then Sgt. Gib Rossetter.

Veterans Day

As Veterans Day November 11, 2009 comes around let us all remember those soldiers, families and friends that paid the ultimate sacrifice for us. Let us also not forget the current troops who serve far and near and put their lives on the line for every single one of us.

Today during one of my volunteering efforts a mom mentioned to me that her son a senior in high school has already signed his paperwork to join the Army upon graduation. She also went on to state that this will now mean her family has 3 sons serving in the military at different installations around the world.

I told her to thank her son’s for their service from a veteran.

If you see a soldier in uniform, tell them “THANK YOU”. If you come across another veteran thank them for their service!

Veterans enjoy your special day and thank you all for your service!!!!!
