Opinion: Thanks for a general’s service
Gen. Jeanne Holm was a very great lady. She served in our military forces for many decades and she served as a model for other women who wanted to be serving our blessed country. In reading about her in the New York Times obits, I discovered her. And I was amazed how dedicated she was in the service. And when I found a sponsor for a plaque mounting on the Mount Soledad Memorial wall, I was very moved. The sponsor recognized this fine general as a most deserving person. As a started, I aimed to find a sponsor. But, when I proposed it to the Mount Soledad Memorial Association and Brig. Gen. Earl Van Inwegen decided to sponsor the plaque, I was thrilled, because my search ceased.
I remember that every day of our lives is a Thanksgiving whereby we thank the Almighty for the day when we rise and see the sky, the flowers, the huge pines rooted deep in the neighborhood.
