The long and many deployments have not helped our military personnel to become “attached” to the community near where they are stationed. Manhattan is so blessed to have our large contingent of military in our community. Military families are play important roles in our churches, our schools, our fraternal organizations. Dependents of the military work in our stores, teach our children, are employed in our medical facilities.
If you are serving in the military or have served in the military, thank you for your service. Our Country just went through another election cycle where we voted for our leaders, freely and without fear… thanks to the job our military does. I, for one, appreciate each and every one of you!!!!
