Youths saluted as ‘special’
About a dozen young men and women - many of them graduating from high school this month - received support and praise as they’re about to embark on service in the U.S. military.
Texans Embracing America’s Military organized the May 19 send-off event at Crosspoint Church.
“Your support both now and throughout their careers is needed and necessary,” said Fort Bend County Precinct 3 Constable Wayne Thompson, the guest speaker, as he addressed the friends, family and supporters of the recruits.
“Our men and women who serve in uniform deserve and require your support. They need ongoing emotional, psychological and physical support. They need our prayers, care packages, notes and letters coming through.
