Buttons honor the service of veterans
Families and friends who wish to recognize the efforts of the military veterans in their lives have a new way to do that.
"Honoring their service" commemorative buttons can be worn to recognize the service men and women who have given a part of their lives in defense of the United States.
The American Legion Auxiliary, including local Unit 71, is sponsoring the program.
"It is a perfect to remember and recognize the service men and women who have given so much in the name of freedom," said Linda Smiley a member of the local Auxiliary and an officer with the S.C. Unit.
"It also helps to spread the wonderful work of our organization while honoring the service of our special veteran and helps to engage new members," she added.
To order a button, all that is needed is a .jpg or .pdf file of a photo of the veteran to be honored on the commemorative pin. Those requesting a pin need only to put their own names in the subject line of an email, attach the photo file and include the wording desired. For example, John Jackson, U.S. Navy veteran. The pin will come back with the veteran's photo, the pertinent information and "Honoring their Service" on it.
The button is 2 -inches in diameter.
A button with just a photo of the veteran (without the name and branch of service) is $5.
A personalized button (with up to two lines of text) is $10.
Email information to email@example.com. Then mail the payment to Greenlure, P.O. Box 610, Louisburg, KS 66053. (An actual photo can be included with the mailed form if the person has no way of transporting an electronic file.
