Comments Off on Veterans Appreciation 2013 Selections
Ohio Flame will be honoring two United States Veteran this Veterans Day.
We received many great submissions this year for our second annual Ohio Flame Veterans Appreciation event. Over the past few weeks, we were able to narrow down the submissions to two United States Veterans, both of which had exemplary stores of service to our Country. One of the Veterans submitted served in World War II and was wounded in the historic Battle of the Bulge. Another Veteran who was submitted served in Vietnam and returned and also in Desert Storm. Ohio Flame has decided that both of these Veterans will be honored this year as part of our Veterans Appreciation 2013. Congratulations to this year’s selections! We will be sending them an Ohio Flame Patriot Fire Pit to enjoy in time for Veterans Day.
