Our Heroes
Col. Timothy Jones, garrison commander, and the Post Library will dedicate "Our Heroes' Tree" March 22 at 3 p.m. "Our Heroes' Tree" is a community engagement program co-founded in 2005 by Stephanie Pickup, author of "The Soldier's Tree," and Marlene Lee, author of "The Hero in My Pocket." Our Heroes' Tree promotes awareness of the service and sacrifice of U.S. service members and their families. It is inclusive of all branches of service, Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve, and all generations. The tree was designed by a Soldier, to honor Soldiers, both past and present, for service to this country. Families, individuals and Family Readiness Groups have created ornaments to display and honor their heroes on the tree. School Age Services will hold a "hero writing" session to support the project. Anyone can make an ornament to honor their hero and all are welcome at the dedication ceremony. Ornament-making sessions are Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. For more information call the Post Library at 353-7372.
