SANDSTONE TOWNSHIP — Thank you Jackson District Library and the World War II program “In Their Own Words,” presented by Larry Martin. What a privilege it has been for my wife and I to meet these brave veterans and hear their courageous life stories during the war.
My own father was one of the veterans interviewed, and we gained a whole new appreciation for his service to our country through the excellent interview Mr. Martin did with him. Mr. Martin’s love for his country and for those who have served it comes through with his patience and compassion for these brave men and women.
I commend all of those involved and highly recommend that anyone, young or old, that are interested in our country’s history and the men and women who preserved our freedom to attend future programs. They are excellent.
