We live in a great country.  We enjoy freedom, opportunity and independence.  We have our problems and challenges, yet remain strong and free.  We owe much of our safety and freedom to those whose serve in our country’s armed forces.  As I read somewhere, “We may not know them all……but we owe them all”.  To honor and publicly recognize those men and women who have proudly served, I am now in the process of gathering the names of all residents and former residents who have either served in, or are presently serving in, the armed forces of the United States.  You should be aware of who these people are, and they deserve to have your complete respect and admiration for their service to our country.  

If you have names of family members who have served, please forward them to me (bhovey@villageofsilverlake.com) so that I can add them to the list.  The current Veteran’s list is below.  The list will be updated every Monday.  As you view the list of names, and as you may know someone on the list, please thank them for their service.  God bless the United States of America!
