"Dear Family, Friends, and fellow veterans:
[Ed: Bernie has been involved with Home Front Ministries, a group through his church] We have been collecting and shipping supplies to our troops since the Iraq war started. You might consider a similar program in your area or, if so inclined, sent items or checks to me. All checks should be made out to St. Jude Church, Home Front Ministry. If requested, I will provide you with the receipt for tax-exempt donations.
To all my fellow veterans, Thanks for Your Service to Our Nation.
Bernie La Fianza"
As Bernie indicated.. please celebrate Veterans Day by remembering those who are currently serving. It's a wonderful way to remember those you served with, whether it's this charity or another.
