Just a moment of thanks to allthose who helped make the recent “operational stand down” a high success at West Virginia Northern Community College. A big thank-you to all the great patriotic students at Wheeling Central Catholic High School, led by Mr. Rob Magruder and the students of St. Michael Parish School and Principal Kim Burge, who collected all the toiletries and packed the bags for handouts to our homeless veterans. A very big thank-you to a great group of students of both schools.
Thanks to members of my veterans committee — Chuck McKee, Charles Buzzard and Bob Delbrugge — who collected these toiletries and brought them to the college, then helped hand them out to the veterans. Past Exalted Elizabeth Perwell did an outstanding job of helping to organize this great endeavor. Thanks to all. As long as there are veterans, they never shall be forgotten.
