Don’t forget the vet

To the Journal editor:

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Superior Memorial Post No. 6 of Marquette would like to thank everyone who made our annual poppy sales a huge success.

One hundred percent of proceeds go to support veterans programs, mainly at Marquette’s Jacobetti Facility and our national home for widows and orphans in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

Other funds go directly to individual vets for eyeglasses, hearing aids, dentures, etc.

Thanks to the following local businesses to allowing us to solicit funds on their premises: Econo Foods, Jack’s IGA, Wal-Mart, ShopKo, Super One Foods and the Westwood Mall.

Thanks to all local residents and visitors who stepped up and contributed several thousand dollars to our cause.

God bless all of you and God bless the United States of America.

Jack Rombouts
