Letter: Pow Wow honored, entertained veterans
I would like to thank the fine folks at the Indian Pow Wow at Watson Lake on Sept. 11 for the grace and dignity they showed veterans.
These Native Americans gave a "Warriors Medal of Valor" to each and every veteran who showed up, and there were over 200 there to receive a medal. What a beautiful keepsake for our future generations to pass on. It was an honor for me to get one of these beautiful medals, as I'm sure it was for every veteran there who received one. This was completely free.
The ability to purchase Native American items and food was there, too.
We need more of these get- togethers - not for the medals, but for the conversation and learning ability.
Again, thank you to everyone involved in putting this event on. You have my respect and gratitude.
