This is a ceremony that will offer to many the true meaning of what Veterans have sacrificed for our freedoms, and things that we can do to bring awareness to everyone who is an American. Please join in the celebration, it is something you will not want to miss. Attendance is asked by all that have served, serving now, and those who support all Veterans and the freedoms we share.
Hope to see you there,
Cliff Leach
Nebraska State Captain, PGR
