Letter: Elks' tribute to veterans was top-notch

On Saturday, July 13, I stopped in at the Elks Lodge on Broadway. They were having a hog roast and tribute to veterans. I've been to other functions for vets. This was undoubtedly the best I've ever been to.

The food was great, the Elks were very kind and hospitable. Buddy Patterson ( a vet) was the disc jockey. He played music old and new and his wife sang a stirring rendition of Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an American."

I believe this was the Elks' first tribute. I sure hope it won't be their last. I encourage all vets to attend the next one. They won't be disappointed.
