To the Editor:
We would like to thank the Madras Chamber of Commerce for displaying the beautiful patriotic ribbons on the trees throughout our town.
As parents of our daughter Joann, who is a TC-2 telecommunications specialist/2nd class petty officer, serving in the United States Coast Guard, it daily reminds us of her.
We are proud of all our daughters, sons, family members and friends who dedicate their time and their lives to defending our country.
We believe that we should keep in prayer not only our military personnel who are serving abroad but especially those who are here, on our homeland, protecting our nation.
"We thank you and salute all our military and families of our service personnel."
Gary and Jenny Bingham
