This past Memorial Day found our Detachment’s Color Guard and Vietnam War Commemoration team honoring veterans living at the Trinity Springs Assisted Living Facility in Oxford. Team members attending were: Nathan Pratt, Neil Stapleton, Garf Cooper, and assisting them, Lou Calleja. One of the residents is a retired Army Brigadier General, and Garf had the honor of pinning him. Two after-action reports has been submitted electronically via the commemoration website.
Also, Garf attended a Marsh Bend community event where he pinned seven veterans; one was too ill to participate in, so Graf went to his home to pin him.
I am honored to be amongst such dedicated members of our detachment and Auxiliary. You show your love for our brothers and sisters in arms every day.
