Message from Business Manager William Brown
Veteran’s Day is a day where we recognize with profound gratitude the sacrifice that our nation’s men and women in the U. S. Armed Forces have made. I would like to offer a sincere thank you to those members and their families who have selflessly answered the call to serve. We owe these brave men and women a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.
