Letter: Thanks To Those Who Helped Make Vets Breakfast Possible

Thanks To Those Who Helped Make Vets Breakfast Possible

Dear Editor:

On Veteran’s Day, The Healing Place (Nashville Assembly of God) was privileged to be able to serve a hot breakfast to about 100 veterans and their families in this our 4th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast.

Many of these American heroes thanked us for the meal and the honor, but it is us who need to thank the veterans for having put their lives on the line for the sake of our nation.

The ability we have to be able to honor our veterans in this way is made possible through community cooperation and assistance. The American Legion has been a consistent and wonderful supporter of this breakfast, allowing us to use the excellent facilities they have without cost to us. In particular I want to express gratitude to Larry Boreup, vice-commander of the Nashville post, for his help to us every year as the liaison between the Legion and the church.

Several of the businesses here in Nashville very generously contributed towards the cost of the breakfast; it would be difficult for us to be able to maintain honoring the veterans each year without the support from the community that we receive. This year, we would like to give a huge “thank you” to the businesses who blessed us with their donations (in alphabetical order): Black Tie Affair, Carquest Auto Parts, Dairy Queen, Hillbilly BBQ, Lee’s Variety, Meier’s Market, Nashville News, Radio Shack and Uniquely Yours. In a very real sense, these firms through their generosity gave honor to the veterans as well.

In a time when there is so much turmoil in our nation, it is refreshing to have the support as we do from the fine people of this community.

Thank you, Nashville, for helping us give honor to our men and women in uniform, past and present.

Sincerely,

Pastor Scott Osenbaugh

Lead Pastor, The Healing Place (Nashville Assembly Of God)
