September already, with Labor Day the unofficial end of summer. But Florida residents know better as this is normally the most active time of the hurricane season. Please stay aware, up-to-date and prepared.
September is also when our Veterans Association resumes its monthly meetings. We meet in the Magnolia Room at 10:45AM on the 3rd Monday of each month. So, mark your calendar for September 20th at 10:45AM. All Veterans are invited to attend. You served your country faithfully and with honor; now we’re asking you to help serve our community.
In addition to Labor Day, there are a couple of days this month that are important to all Americans. The first, Sept 11th, better known as Patriot Day. This day is set aside as a national day of mourning each year in memory of the citizens we lost in the terrorist attacks on 9-11-2001. Fly your flag, say a prayer, observe a moment of silence in memory of those lost. The second, September 17th, Americans celebrate Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. You are encouraged to remember the importance of our Constitution, and reflect on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and what it means to be a U.S. Citizen.
September 17th is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. This is truly a day of mourning for all Veterans and Veteran’s families. Across the Nation, there will be many ceremonies and events to recognize POWs, MIA and their families to show honor and support for their sacrifice. According to the Department of Defense, there are almost 82,000 American Military members still listed as missing. As you travel around you will see the Black and White POW/MIA Flag flying under the American Flag. This is a powerful symbol of America’s determination to account for US personnel still missing and unaccounted for. Please honor this flag and what it represents. And again, say a prayer and observe a moment of silence for all POW/MIA and their families.
As always, our association has US Flags (3X5) for sale at $23, and Memorial Bricks to honor our
CCC Veterans at our Memorial site. Please visit our CCC website for more Veterans information. Included on the website is a list of our current officers with phone numbers, and a form to order Memorial
See you on Sep 20th!
For God and Country,
