Rosemary House hosted four delightful couples last Wednesday night. They stayed overnight and had breakfast with us on Veteran’s Day. They agreed to let us tell you a bit about them. And take their pictures!
Putting aside the politics, the reasons for conflicts, the right-or-wrongness of why the lives of young men and women are at risk in far-away lands, the fact remains that they and their families give up years of their lives to serve this country, often under conditions of danger, uncertainty, and hardship.
So when the program B&B For Vets was proposed, in which B&Bs give a free night to a veteran, we at Rosemary House were eager to participate. All five rooms were opened to first-come first-served reservations, and soon booked. One canceled, but that left three couples and a family who arrived on November 10 to enjoy a free night’s stay at a B&B, a bit of acknowledgment for their service.
Eugene and Marilyn Dickey. He retired from the Air Force where he worked in the R&D field with an overseas assignment in Hawaii. They enjoy – wait for it – 39 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Here they are below, 3rd and 4th from the right.
A group of really nice people we were so pleased to meet and appreciate.
Veteran’s Day has come and gone, but the gratitude we owe those who serve in the military shouldn’t be confined to a single day.
Thank you for your service.
