Honor, Respect, Remember

Last week was National Veterans Awareness Week. While looking into Veterans Day events at the time, I came across this article in the Village of North Palm Beach’s Newsletter about a Palm Beach Gardens Boy Scout, Kyle Malone, who is working toward becoming an Eagle Scout. He would like to create a Veterans Memorial at Osborn Park in North Palm Beach and could use some help with funding, construction, landscaping and installation. He hopes to raise $3,000.00 for the memorial.

Young men like Kyle Malone have a lot to teach the “adults” in the room about maintaining that awareness and offering a tangible demonstration of the honor and respect due to America’s Veterans who’ve given so much to us.

If you are interested in encouraging Kyle and helping him achieve his laudable goal of remembering and thanking those who have served in our nation’s military with a memorial right here in our area, his contact information is at the bottom of the letter.

I look forward to his success in constructing the memorial and in his quest to become an Eagle Scout.
