Applause, Applause!

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.

My THANK YOU and deepest appreciation to Ken and Karen Shadle for their vision to create a memorial to the men of our area who sacrificed their lives in Vietnam. What a lovely tribute now stands in Veterans Park because of your efforts!! Thanks also to those who were involved in the dedication ceremony and to the Vietnam veterans and others who were in attendance. Thanks to the many of my family that were able to be there as we remembered the one of ours whose name we feel is deeply attached to this memorial by the very pieces of our heart — our precious brother, CPL Milford H. Wensel. It was such a beautiful day. Everything was so nice. I was truly blessed.
