I want to personally thank all the veterans who have served, whether during wartime, or during times of peace, and regardless of the branch of military you served in. I think you all are very special, for dedicating your life to your country. We can never honor you enough. I still hold out hope that Apopka will one day build a veteran’s park dedicated to all veterans. Please enter your comment!last_img read more
