EHFOP Board Member Redd Griffin delivered the following remarks to veterans and friends at the Oak Park Arms on Nov. 22, 2009:
On Veterans Day we are grateful for what our veterans have done in war and peace across the years. Much can be learned from contemplating what their service was like and what it means to us today. There are many to learn from — 23.2 million as of 2008 — to be exact.
