This is a Battlefield Cross that was displayed at my local AmVets thrift store this past Friday April 4, 2014 along with a memorial wall dedicated to the fallen soldiers & citizens from 9/11 & terrorism from 1983-2012. Very educational, interesting and touching. Thank you to those who began this wall two years ago which was only to be displayed once but has now been up for its 34th time and counting!!!! Thank you to the men and women who give their lives for our freedom! God Bless America!
We had a blast at the Army Ten-Miler Expo representing AMVETS and the Career Centers! We are proud to report that AMVETS collected over 600 pairs of running shoes for the AMVETS Thrift Stores!! Thank you to everyone who donated in support of our veterans! #military #veterans #armytenmiler #expo #dcarmory https://www.armytenmiler.com/
