Kilroy Coffee Klatch Speaker Robert WestMarch 4, 2014
At our March Kilroy Coffee Klatch former Secret Service agent Robert West will be speaking about his career. He began his military career in 1965 in the Army National Guard where he served as a medic until 1971. In 1972 he was hired by the Secret Service where he worked criminal cases involving counterfeiting, financial crimes, and intelligence. Between 1975 and 1997 he was assigned to protect important political figures and their families such as Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, and Jimmy Carter.
Robert West is sure to be a very interesting speaker and you won't want to miss this one! Remember, our Kilroy Coffee Klatch is always held the first Tuesday of every month and is FREE to any and all veterans! We serve coffee and breakfast treats and the program begins at 10 A.M. Non-veterans are welcome, but there is a general admission charge.
We hope to see you there!
Gold Star Mothers DaySeptember 28, 2014
Hanging service flags in windows or wearing them on your lapel during WWII became a popular way to remember and support your loved one fighting in the war. The number of blue stars indicated the number of loved ones serving, and gold stars indicated those who had died fighting for their country. As a result, being a "Blue Star Mother" still to this day means you have a child currently serving our country, while a "Gold Star Mother" has a child who has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Perhaps unknown to many, the last Sunday in September is Gold Star Mothers Day. Join us as we acknowledge and honor these women by offering free admission to all Gold Star and Blue Star Mothers.
