Letter to Editor: Pause today to remember those who fought
The members of the Park Rapids American Legion Auxiliary would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the U.S. 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 today to remember those who have fought for our freedoms.
Thank you to all who have so bravely protected us.
