Invite to veterans

Dear Editor:

At this year’s Aspen Fourth of July parade, the valley community will again have an opportunity to acknowledge the sacrifice and service of the generations of men and women who have served our country in war and peace. Their efforts will be recognized in the parade entry “Tribute to Our Valley Veterans.”

We invite all U.S. military veterans and active duty personnel, locals and visitors, to walk in the Aspen parade with us. Participants should locate the group near Paepcke Park, at the start of the parade route, by 11:15 am. Veterans needing transportation should call Peter Hoffman, at 379-1371, ASAP. For more information, veterans can call Hugh Roberts at 927-4194, or Salty Glenn at 948-8278.

Because of their service and sacrifice, we Americans celebrate our freedom and independence this Fourth of July. Please come join the other veterans walking, or give the vets a big cheer of appreciation from the sidelines.

Hugh Roberts
