On behalf of the AmVets Honor Guard of Dupont, I would like to thank your newspaper, the Sunday Dispatch, for the excellent coverage of the trip made by the WWII Veterans to see the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC, which was sponsored by Leadership Wilkes-Barre and supported by businesses and private contributions.
Your correspondent, Gary Truax was a pleasure to know and did a wonderful job covering the trip and taking so many photos.
The trip was a complete success as seen by the reaction of the veterans upon site of the memorial.
Thank you to Congressmen Kanjorski and Carney for their presence and hospitality. It was appreciated.
Again thank you for your coverage and thank you to Leadership Wilkes-Barre for a most memorable day.
