Thank you, veterans
« on: November 09, 2019, 12:24:28 am »
Michelle and I attended the Veterans Dinner hosted by the Santaquin American Legion. SSgt. Porter, who was a tail gunner on bombing missions during WWII, spoke about his experiences. He's 93 years old, and the only surviving member of his B-29 crew. His accounts reminded us to be thankful for the sacrifices of all who have served our country. Thank you, veterans!

We have a man in our stake who flew a B29 bomber (I think)..he is in his mid 90s! Cool you and your wife were able to celebrate the man you know!
