In appreciation of all that our veterans have done, I’d like to set aside a special place on the web to honor veterans from Walnut Creek and all across the San Francisco East Bay.
If you’re a veteran, or the friend or family member of one, and would like to publicly acknowledge and thank them for their service, please leave a comment in the comments section below.
I’d also like to recognize them on our Facebook pages, so please feel free to share a photo that I may post here on this blog and on Facebook, complete with as much information as you have about their service time. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
