It’s a good day to dwell on fearless acts

Yesterday, a Facebook friend posted one of those rhetorical questions: “What’s the most fearless thing you’ve ever done?”
I’d just come from the noon meeting of the Lima Exchange Club. The lunch usually includes a guest speaker, and this week was a special treat: Marjorie Bryan.

I met Bryan in June at the Allen County Airport, when she went skydiving for the first time. I should mention Bryan is 83 years old, she has a slew of great-grandchildren and even two great-great-grandchildren.

Blue Star Mothers Of The Jersey Shore

Walking To Remember The Fallen Of September 11, 2001 

They left the Toms River Armory early in the morning and headed out under ominous skies, into sweltering heat and humidity.
They trudged through Huddy Park, then down onto Route 9 South, into Beachwood, Pine Beach, Bayville and Ocean Gate. It was tough going in camouflage and heavy combat boots.
But that did not deter Sgt. First Class Theodore Berry - a full-time National Guard recruiter - and his fellow marchers on Saturday.
"When we do these walks, it's not a recruiting event, it's a pride event," Berry said.
Members of the Blue Star Mothers of the Jersey Shore, Chapter#4 and the American Recreational Military Services (A.R.M.S.) were also there to support the walkers.


Blue Star Mother Group

An unofficial group of Blue Star Mothers, Friends and Families created for the purpose of supporting our troops, veterans and each other. It is also a venue for sharing information of interest to group members and for group discussion.
We welcome members of Blue Star Mothers of America, Mothers of the Troops and Veterans, Blue Star Families, American Gold Star Mothers and Gold Star Wives and members of other military or veterans support groups.

Welcome Home

Greensboro, NC -- Army Sergeant Cory Pennel has spent the last year in Afghanistan. Tonight, he came back home to a warm reception at Piedmont Triad International Airport.
He was immediately greeted with hugs from his wife, Savannah, son, and mother, Susan Haver, followed by more friends and family. Members of the Blue Star Moms group also showed up to support. As they exited the terminal, they walked through a concourse lined with flags by members of the Patriot Guard.
