Thanks to AMVETS leader for talking to EJ students

To the editor:

It is with sincere thanks that we would like to extend our appreciation to Mrs. Pam Amig for coming to East juniata High School to talk to the 9th grade Civics classes. Mrs. Amig is the president of our local AMVETS American Veterans Ladies Auxiliary which is a subordinate national organization of AMVETS.

The AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary provide a broad range of services and support to veterans as well as to the community. She shared some of those support activities, especially in regard to EJ’s Ed Reinhold who is deployed to Afghanistan presently. Mrs. Amig talked to the students about the Flag Code, and the symbolism and care of the American Flag. She also shared with the students about her own sons who are in the U.S. military and attended the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.
