Vietnam veterans thank community

To the editor:

Our organization, the Vietnam Veterans Support Group Chapter 1, conducted a successful fundraising and community service project at the Wal-Mart store at the Fort Steuben Mall on June 29.

We wish to thank Wal-Mart, its employees and customers for their help. We collected numerous old United States flags for a future flag-retirement ceremony this fall. We were able to provide information to many area veterans about services that they may qualify for, as well.

Again, a big thank you to our great, and patriotic community.

God bless America.
