Vietnam Vet honors families of those serving today

...by learning to sew and making Blue Star and Gold Star Service Banners which he sends to the families. He's former Marine Rod Robeson who was chosen by ABC News as Person of the Week back in March.

He recently attended the 2nd Anniversary Celebration of the Blue Star Mothers of Massachusetts, Chapter 1 in Leominster, MA. Secretary Tina Veves, who sent me the link to this story, describes him as an "unassuming and quiet" man, and a "true patriot and caring veteran".

I would also like to give a big shout out to this chapter of the Blue Star Mothers, for their generous, enthusiastic, and ongoing support of our mission at Soldiers' Angels Germany. Thank you Tina, Treasurer Linda Tackett, Vice President Rosemarie Annese, President Sharon Bouchard, and all of the members of this wonderful chapter. You rock!!
