Operation Meatball WWII Veterans Dinner
December 9, 2014
Our WWII Veterans Dinner was a smashing success. We held it at the simply gorgeous Dick's Classic Garage in San Marcos, Texas. With a turnout of 15 amazing veterans and their families, grand 1940s music sung by Faith (and a few special songs from our brother Honor and sister Virginia), wonderful conversations with the veterans, it was a phenomenal evening. The vintage cars were a big draw for the veterans, and it was incredible to hear them say to us, "I drove that car in 1938. It was the first car I owned." ... and much more like that.
We were honored to have as our special guest speaker, Mr. Maurice Renaud, the son of the Mayor of St. Mere Eglise during WWII. His mother is the famed Mother of Normandy, who dedicated her life to caring for the graves of the American fallen. Mr. Renaud has done so much for the WWII veterans with his organization the AVA (friends of American Veterans).
