Relative grateful for veterans’ recognition


To the editor,

In reference to the “Wreath’s Across America,” story in Saturday’s edition of The Courier-Times, I would personally like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the Roxboro Rotary Club and members of the Roxboro Police Department’s Honor Guard for donating their time, placing wreaths on veterans headstones at the city’s cemeteries.

My dad, George T. Miller, was an Army World War II veteran and very proud. During all the visits to the Durham VA Hospital I heard so many stories in the waiting room and they were like a family sitting and talking. During those visits I gained a whole new perspective of a “veteran.” I am personally touched and appreciative of the wreaths being placed at the headstones to honor and recognize all veterans. I pray my dad knows how proud I am of him and that he is my hero.

Barbara Miller
