Camp Cecil Perkerson Veteran’s Club, Post 186 of the American Legion in Greenville held a special ceremony honoring veterans and especially World War II veterans on Monday 11th November at 11 am at Greenville United Methodist Church.
Reverend Jan Oglesbee spoke about veterans and their courage, honor, and faith. Her message was distinctive in that it was told from a mother’s point of view as she said good bye to her son Tim as he traveled to Afghanistan and then Iraq. The worries and prayers for her son in combat never stopped.
A reception in the church’s fellowship hall followed the service where everyone enjoyed and found fascinating the display of World War II memorabilia plus the WW2 veterans’ pictures.
