Dear Teachers and Students,
On behalf of the American Legion and all our veterans who have served this great nation, please accept our "thanks" and "job well done" for helping your young people serve their community. They served our brave women by recognizing not only those who have fought for their freedoms, but also for those in our current military by writing letters to our female veterans.
As history has taught us, we have easily forgotten the two simple words of "Thank You" to our service men and women.
It is your generation who must now support and thank the soldier of this time in history for all the freedoms you continue to have. You have recognized your part in today's world and have stepped up to take on the challenge of remembering it's never too late to say thank you to any of our military, but especially those who seem to get overlooked the woman veteran.
Mrs. Hummitzsch, thank you for mentoring your school in their obligation as a citizen, as a child of God, and as a member of this great nation. You have all come forward and willingly and generously give a thoughtful expression of gratitude through your letters. Many were read by the women at Zablocki VA Center and great emotion was expressed by all. Your children genuinely understand the meaning of compassion and gratefully and lovingly showed it. You can be proud of them all!
God bless you all,
Barbara Naffier, Chairman
Woman Veterans "Thank You" Project
The American Legion Family.
