And our forward soldiers need our support
General Greene lost his life at the hands of an insider, an attack that left another 15 service members wounded in a training base outside of Kabul. We honor the life of General Greene and the wounded soldiers. Thank you for your heroic service, a service we will not forget.
Locally we still have many soldiers in harms way and we need to remember they deserve our support and thoughts. USMC veteran Bridget Corso (Melrose) recently returned from Afghanistan and Massachusetts VSOs Mike Sweeney (Lynn) and Keith Jermyn (Hingham). If you would like to donate supplies and well wishes to these forward soldiers, the Melrose Veterans Memory Project is currently collecting items at Melrose City Hall. Let's flood them with thanks and support.
We would be remiss, as we go about the challenge of providing services to veterans in Melrose, Wakefield and Saugus if we did not pause and remember those who continue to sacrifice in the name of freedom.
We challenge you to do the same. Rest in Peace General Greene.
