Google this.

I would like some feedback on this one. 

This month we will continue to honor the Bremer Co. veterans who “gave their all” during the Vietnam War. Remember Verlyn Bruns, born June 14, 1946 (ironically, Flag Day). He was a member of recon platoon, E Co, 3rd BN, 21st infantry, US Army. On January 11, 1970, he was killed outright by multiple fragmentation wounds from a booby trap. His name is engraved on panel W14, Line 25, on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. Verlyn’s final resting place is in Harlington Cemetery in Waverly.

AMVETS Post 79 is happy to announce the 2021 scholarship winners: Abigael Thier, Isabel Thier, and Isabella Canney. These scholarships are only possible because of your support of AMVET activities, mainly the steak fries on the fourth Saturday of every month. Thanks for making these gifts possible. These 3 recipients seem like really fine young ladies in spite of who the 2 Grandfathers are of whom I know. 

Just a little more. Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool fundraiser I gave him a glass of water.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white. and blue stand for freedom until they are flashingbehind you.
