It is good to have specific times of reflection dedicated to what we have to be thankful to
as citizens of the United States. Perhaps no other group of folks is more attuned to the spirit of patriotism and loyalty
to our great nation than our veterans. In Abita Springs, the Homer Williams Post 8720 is a significant part of that group
of loyal Americans, and they remain active in keeping the post viable and include ways for others to reflect on and share
in the American patriotic spirit.
Recently, the local VFW swore in a new set of officers and presented awards to some others who
did an outstanding job of sharing their thoughts on the value of being good citizens and loyal Americans.
After 10 years of service as commander of the post, Bob Massa is stepping aside and turning
command over to Mike Peats.
