Meet A Veteran Day Media Coverage

For those of you who don't know, I live in a uniquely small town. How small do you ask? Small enough the newspaper, The Lassen Times is published once a week. All stories have to be submitted Thursday by noon, and the paper is delivered the following Tuesday. Oh... and did I mention the newspaper is free? One might think with such a small paper the names, places, and basic facts of the stories are accurate.... well I'll just say we get what we pay for.

As is the case every year, Veterans Day is widely celebrated in the local paper. This year, Words For Warriors had two pictures from Meet A Veteran Day included in their collage of Veterans Day celebrations.

I know the writing is small under the photos in these pictures, but the paper gave the credit of Meet A Veteran Day to the Janesville Faculty.  Janesville Faculty have gone out of their way to thank me for the assembly. I have also received much gratitude from Veterans.  Even though the paper got it wrong... again... I feel honored to have put the assembly together and look forward to next years assembly.


Their Sacrafice. Our Freedom.

That was cool.... by the way, for every news paper story where I was at the scene of the crime as a cop, they got at least 50% of the info wrong....
