Veterans Day is a great day to be a veteran, and I am….Military Police 1972-74… a lifetime ago.
- But this year, after calling my father and thanking him for his service in WWII, I was honored to present the official portrait of Louis Stokes who was a U.S. Congressman for thirty years and did more for veterans rights and services than any living politician.
- The Veterans Administration has named numerous buildings after him, one of which is the new Hospital in Cleveland and his portrait now hangs in its atrium…thanks to funding by the American Legion.
- Thank you to the great staff at he the VA, especially Michael, Mindy, Liz and Ashley
