Dear Post Commander,

With the support of Chris Mulholland (Post 2894) and many others, I completed a book entitled *The Long Journey home: The Untold Story of Forgotten Soldiers. *The* *book, which took me 6.5 years to write, was based on a 2014 AP class project that changed the lives of my students. It is the story of how a diverse group of post-millenials rediscovered their local history and had a better understanding of the cost of war. They went beyond the learning objectives and developed relationships with Gold Star families that changed their lives. Reading these student tributes will bless your members. Here is the link:

Kudos to those members of Charlotte County VFW Post 8902 for the trash pick up.....20 bags of trash on Rt 47 Tollhouse Rd/Vietnam Veterans Highway. A 2 mile stretch.
We ran out of bags and still some more trash to be picked up. Those 5 (one was a family member) of us all had the same comment, "Man I'm worn out after all this.'

We're just a bunch of Veterans trying to make a difference in our county .
