“Our Veterans,” the book recently published by The Leader, honors the community members who have served their country in the United States Armed Forces.
The rest of the community has an opportunity to meet many of those heroes, and learn even more about them and their service, at a book signing reception scheduled for next Saturday in Garden Oaks.
American Legion Post 560, located at 3720 Alba Rd., is hosting a “Meet The Heroes” event from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 — the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Many of the veterans featured in the book served in World War II, which is the conflict that ensued.
Some of the veterans profiled in the 120-page book, or their relatives, will be on hand to autograph copies of the book and share stories. Snacks and refreshments also will be provided at the free event.
Copies of the book are $39 and will be available for purchase at the event. They also are available at The Leader office, located at 2020 N Loop W, Suite 220, or online at theleadernews.com.
