It was my pleasure to welcome a few hundred fine people to Union County for the Honor Ride held at Pete's Place today. Thank you to Keith, the Pete's Place staff, and all who were involved in this great event. As always, thank you to all of our veterans and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. ...

Thank you Union County for honoring Ryan. Ryan became a true man of valor. It is with great pain, grief, and anger that we reflect on what happened August 26th that ended Ryan’s life along with 12 other young soldiers doing their best to save lives in a humanitarian outreach. May we never forget the great sacrifice that our great military men and women offer, even to the detriment of their own lives. May we all learn to have a purpose and make a difference in the vapor of life that we are given to honor ourselves, others, and mostly importantly The Lord.
