Today was a really great day! It was really nice to see everyone get together and pay tribute to our fallen. Fire Chief Hess was the guest speaker and Mike Davis, commander of the local VFW post, read a very touching story and also coordinated the whole event along with his comrades and auxilaries.

It always makes me feel good when I see people come together. After the memorial we were all invited to the local VFW to have cake. I don't know about everybody in Q-Town but I would like to see us all get together like today for no reason at all. Just to hang out and enjoy the people around us.
It seems you can't ever learn enough in this world and when I get around the people in this town it always seems I learn something new or get to learn of an experience, especially from the older generation, that will probably help me along in my own life. Chief Hess helped me realize that there are soldiers in our own back yards that are fighting a war for us here. I always related Memorial Day to soldiers, but now realize that the Fire Fighters, EMT's, our Law Enforcement and a numerous amount of other people here state side that lay their life on the line to make sure that our day goes just a little easier.
I would like to thank all of those individuals that serve our great nation.


  1. Q Town Defender,

  2. Thank you Rain, wish you would have been there... It was such a great day... I am sorry I am responding now, I quit checking this out due to the fact that it seems people only want drama, but I was totally happy this day...
