To the Editor,

American Legion (Nelson E. Pickwell Post #15) would like to announce that this year’s theme for the annual Memorial Day program and parade is honoring our wounded warriors. Our guest speaker, Staff Sgt. Erick Millette, will share his inspirational story of courage, recovery, and growth, and will describe how the Wounded Warrior Project has aided him in his transition back to civilian life. We’d like to encourage your participation in the program and especially the parade. It would be great to have businesses, groups, and individuals enter floats welcoming our nation’s wounded warriors home. Families, individuals, and kids are all welcome to be in the parade as well, walking or even riding bikes – bring your flags. The parade organizers on behalf of the Legion are Wendy Pratt and Susie Haughwout. Call Susie at (802) 464-5836 or email at wilmclrk@sover.net or Wendy Pratt at (802) 368-7207 with any questions. Let’s plan to have a meaningful Memorial Day this May 27.

Wendy Pratt and Susie Haughwout
