Shutdown didn’t hurt Vet’s event

To the editor:

With our government recently shutting down and crossing a line that should never be discussed, debated nor crossed, our veterans were shamefully forgotten.

Our communities did not forget. Our Monday was spent as another successful Veterans’ Day at our Houghton Applebee’s!! As always, Lisa and her staff did not disappoint!

What a wonderful day seeing all the veterans coming out on such a frigid day in the Yoop.

Thank you Applebee’s and staff for an excellent experience.

Even though Veterans’ Day is behind us for another year, we should never forget to remember and to thank our veterans. So, thank you to my dad and brother, uncles and cousins, friends and strangers, past and present veterans and their families for the courage, sacrifice and service to our Country.
