LVMAC Tidbit — United Veterans of Lehigh County Closes Up Shop (Food for Thought II)

November 12, 2016

On the heels of the previous Tidbit, comes this sad news:

“Veterans Day flag-raising ceremonies are always poignant and grow more so by the year, because the crowds that attend them have grown smaller and smaller and the unifying feeling evoked by the flag has likewise been shrinking.” (Dan Sheehan, Morning Call, 10 November 2016).  It has helped lead to the demise of the United Veterans of Lehigh County, formerly known as the United Veterans of Allentown, founded in 1929.

LVMAC Tidbit — What We’ve Learned from Hiring 10,000 Veterans at Hilton

November 10, 2016

From time to time, an article on honoring our veterans appears during the Veterans Day period which is noteworthy by its difference.  When one wishes to honor our veterans, demonstrating the capacity for caring through deeds far exceeds those expressed in words and ceremony.  The quieter way has more meaning.  As this article relates, the desire to assist our military veterans in their transition back (and often forth) into civilian life benefits all.  Sincerely written, this article by the Chris Nassetta, President and CEO of the Hilton Worldwide, provides useful pointers to both veterans and those wishing to help them.
