  1. We need to give honor to the military more than 1 day a year. The military serves everyday and as a country we need to appreciate and honor way more than just 1 day a year with parade and maybe fireworks. I mean thank you and though not in the military I would like to do something for the living or a marriage partner left.

    • Hi Cheryl –
      Have you contacted the local Allen County Council of Veterans? They might be able to offer some suggestions or even know of someone already doing this.
