GREEN RIVER – At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, Mayor Rust and Harry Holler, a tireless advocate for veterans from every era, shared a letter from K. Luke Reiner Major General, WYNG. In the letter the Major General Reiner thanks the citizens of Green River for the care packages that are sent each Holiday Season to men and women oversees proudly serving their country.
The letter reads:
I just wanted to send a personal thank you to you, the businesses, volunteer groups and community members that made the care packages possible. I learned that you and your team successfully sent over 8000 letters/care packages last year and intend to keep taking care of our Wyoming guardsmen overseas.
Learning about a community that comes together to take care of our Wyoming service members is absolutely astonishing. Knowing that your community dedicates their time and money to helping others is indicative of the high caliber citizens within your community.
These actions speak volumes for Veterans in the state of Wyoming.
Please express my highest gratitude for their help and the statement they make with every care package they send!”
