To the editor:
The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Auxiliary (DAVA) of Hunt County recently held our first pancake breakfast to benefit our veterans. We would like to thank all those who helped us make this event such a success.
A hearty thank you to the Elks Lodge for the most generous offer of their members, building and kitchen facilities. Secondly, the Cracker Barrel and IHOP both donated pancake batter, and Brookshire’s and Super 1 grocery stores donated gift cards for required purchases. Brookshire’s and Super 1 have always been staunch supporters of our veterans and are always ready to assist however they can.
We would also like to thank the GISD NJROTC who assisted us by directing customers to our breakfast and providing a youthful and energetic approach to the breakfast. They are a wonderful bunch of young men and women under the tutelage of Commander James Reed.
Additionally, the Herald-Banner was very supportive with their wonderful coverage of this event through a feature story about our organization and the event. The Herald-Banner has always been there to assist us as they were able.
Finally, we would like to thank the citizens of Hunt County who showed their appreciation and support of their veterans. All proceeds help our Hunt County veterans and their families.
The DAV and DAVA look forward to all our events which bring us into contact with not only our friends and neighbors but new friends as well.

What is rescue all about?
Rescue is a calling for most people.
Who are we backing?
It is amazing that President Obama, who only five years ago was the staunch anti-war (and anti-Bush) freshman Senator from Illinois, is now whole-heartedly throwing his support behind Syrian rebels to topple the Assad regime.
A big thank you
A huge THANK YOU to the many people who stopped by our booth at Rally Round Greenville.
Top notch crew
On Saturday morning, Sept. 14, I had a TIA. I was sure that was what it was because my right arm felt like lead.
Thank you for your help
It just wouldn’t seem right for me not to submit a very heartfelt message to my friends and former colleagues at the Hunt County Courthouse after last weekend’s Rally ‘Round Greenville.
Medal finally awarded to Murphy
Governor Rick Perry this past week awarded the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor to America’s “most decorated” combat soldier of WWII Audie Murphy.
