Letter: Welcome home was awesome ceremony

To the Editor:

I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all those who came to welcome our son Rob home from four years in the United States Marine Corps.

A very special thanks to Dave Green who coordinated the event.

He was able to arrange for our VFW to show up in full dress uniform to put on an awesome welcome home ceremony. It was a truly humbling experience. It made me proud to be an American and a member of this community.

I would urge anyone who has never attended one of these ceremonies to get involved. No matter what your political beliefs, welcoming home these young men who give up so much so that we can enjoy the everyday freedoms that we take for granted is so little to ask.

It was a day my son will never forget. Once again, thank you.

Jerry and Sally Teigen
