Letter to the Editor: Thanks to LV Veterans Monument Committee

June 3, 2014

The Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association (LVEDA) commends and thanks Patti Riddle and her Lucerne Valley Veterans Monument Committee for an amazing job beautifully done. 

The Memorial Day ceremony was a wonderful experience.  The monuments at the Park and Cemetery are classic.   The Dedication’s booklets are professional.  Everything you have done is a Class Act — a major attribute for our community. 

Getting two county supervisors and our congressman all together is a testament to your good work and perseverance. 

And thanks to John Miller and his crew for posting the flags along the highway — and to Jerry Byars and his helpers for working the flags for so many years. 

The huge crowd — many of them from out of town — witnessed what that special day is supposed to be all about — patriotism — honoring our veterans — and “Let’s Never Forget” the freedoms they preserved for us.  It’s our job to keep them.
