The Tippecanoe River Wythogan Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution are using their time this week to travel to Marshall County nursing and assisted living facilities. Upon arrival they meet the veterans who live there and thank them for their service. Cheryl Ball was the spokes person for the group. She talked about what the DAR stands for and what they do in the county. She also remarked that it was a great honor to meet each veteran and thank him or her personally for answering the call to serve and protect our fine country. Ball ended her speech with asking those present to recite the Pledge of Allegiance with her.
The DAR gave a small American flag in a stand and a card of thanks to each veteran. The veterans honored at Miller’s Assisted Living were (seated l-r) Bud Strang, Frank Bair and Glen Martin. Representatives from the DAR were (standing l-r) Linda Overmyer, Evelyn Leiter, Cheryl Ball, and Ellen Hummel.
