Driving 2 hours to Phoenix. Today’s event at Papago National Guard Armory, 130pm Ceremony. Goldie had arranged a wonderful ceremony at the Papago National Guard Armory. Many Gold Star families were in attendance as well as participation from veterans organizations and the military. With the assistance of General Brown several flag presentations were made after my presentation. Six families received flags today in an emotional event. I was so honored to meet these and so many other families as we were able to share tears and stories of our loved ones.
Two other special items about today, Governor Brewer proclaimed it Honor and Remember day in Arizona and I was presented with three special plaques in honor of Tony for myself, his wife and his children.
Many thanks to Goldie for pulling this all together and making it so very memorable for us all. We will continue to reach every family in Arizona with personalized flags. Help us if you can.
Tomorrow: Open Day
