A visit to the Air Force Academy

The Air Force Academy is an inspiring place to visit. I was there during a time known as Beast. This is the time when, new incoming cadets, go through a rigorous series of events to test mental and physical toughness as well as forming cohesion as a class. One of the highlights of a visit to the Academy is a visit to the chapel. I had been in the chapel many times but this is the first time I noticed that the front rows are roped off and have a dedication plaque to POW MIA’s. The rows remain empty in remembrance of those who can not attend. This is just one of the ways the Academy strives to honor those who serve; past and present, while training up our future.

Remembering D-Day

Yesterday was the 73rd anniversary of the landings of the allied forces at Normandy. The next time you see someone wearing a baseball cap that says WWII on it just remember…

Then shake their hand and thank them for your freedom!

Remembering

Thank you to all the restaurants who participated in POW Greenville this year. Your dedication to the memory of service members is appreciated by your community.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is fast approaching. Let us take this opportunity to pay tribute to those who can not be with us! My name is Warren Converse and live here in Greenville. I like to help people celebrate Memorial Day by setting up POW tables around town. But why? Well, because when you see a POW table it reminds you to stop and take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is all about. Last year I had three restaurants participate and this year I would like to see that number grow. If you would like a table, please fill out a request form.
