Wreath heartfelt, deeply appreciated
News from American Legion Post No. 138, Ronan
RONAN — American Legion District #4 presented Raquel “Rocky” Davis of Ronan with a certificate of appreciation. Last September the “Healing Wall” came to Kalispell and all the Veterans Service Groups in the area were asked to place a wreath in honor of all those lost in the Vietnam War. Upon learning that Rocky made wreaths, she was asked to make one with an American Legion theme for the ceremony. She accepted the job as a tribute to her father, a Vietnam War veteran. She said, “He didn’t die there, but we still lost him to the war.”
So, a lot of heart went into making the wreath, which was placed at the wall on behalf of The American Legion by Commander Mike Shepard of Columbia Falls Post No. 72 and District No. 4 Commander Glen Sharbono of Ronan.
To show the grateful appreciation of the whole district and himself, Commander Sharbono had all the Commanders, or a representative of each Post within the District, sign the certificate. It took some time to acquire all the signatures. The certificate is signed by 12 Post officers in addition to the District Commander and Mike Shepard.
