Linn County Leader

To the Editor:

The members of American Legion Auxiliary Green Hills American Legion Auxiliary Unit 57 would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.

Thank you for serving this great country. Thank you for protecting us. Thank you for the security we have here at home. We know you sacrificed much for your country and all of us. And though you may no longer wear the uniform, we know you’re always on call to serve and protect the freedom and security of the United States of America.

We invite everyone to pause on Veterans Day to remember those who have fought for our freedoms. Thank you to all who have so bravely protected us.
