Our November meeting is dedicated to our military, both active and veterans. Veterans' Day is on Monday, November 11th so it is a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation during our meeting the Saturday before. We will get updates on conditions for our current active-duty personnel and hear from veterans about their experiences protecting and defending our freedoms and our nation, the United States of America, the greatest nation on God's green earth.
We will be collecting items (or checks) for Packages4Patriots an Elk Grove Village organization for their "Operation World Christmas." They were very appreciative of the donations we brought this summer, and so we decided to collect again. They now support 8 Illinois soldiers and 6 soldiers from AnySoldier.
Our deployed soldiers need our support more than ever because of the draw-down & budget cuts.
