Veterans Day: Thank you, Carl Laks, DEC member

Congratulations to Carl and Helga Laks — Carl is a member of our Democratic Executive Committee, who often leads the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings — for their mention in the touching Miami Herald story on Veterans Day about the elder vets who volunteer for honor guard duty at funerals for veterans.

Your blogger (a Vietnam vet) knows the Lakses and respects the many things they do to tend the flame of memory and duty to those who served.
