NEWS LETTER PAGE 1 Commander                                   William Fiedler

Greetings in the name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  I hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend remembering all of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country and others.

The Honor guard served on Memorial Day.  Morgan and Greg on the rifle team and Tony carrying the Post flag at the Veterans Monument.  Primo, Pete, Gary and myself performed a Memorial Day ceremony at Eskaton Village in Placerville.  Opening Prayer, a brief history previously known as Decoration Day, Flag folding and Taps.  We also visited Veterans who were at the program and listened to their stories.  I spoke to one lady as she lost a nineteen old family member who died in Combat.  He is buried in France.  Another Combat Veteran who fought in Belgium related some of his stories as best as he could remember.  His daughter told me had early stages of Dementia.  He was proudly wearing his Veterans hat!  It is an honor to still meet some WWII veterans living in our county.  ( "Greater Love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."  John 15:13.)  Until next time,  with Jesus Love and my brotherly love for you,  Doug
