Veterans were given a heroes welcome at a local group’s annual luncheon.
Naperville Responds For Our Veterans honored those who have served at their “Strength and Honor” lunch at the Sheraton Hotel in Lisle.
The featured speaker this year was Lynn Lowder, a decorated Combat Marine and Vietnam Vet.
“It’s amazing what can happen when you bring a group of people together who decide to focus on common principles and goals with the key leading thing being service to others over self. Veterans get this concept and ladies and gentleman they get it as purely as it can be gotten,” said Lowder.
Naperville Responds For Our Veterans, embodies that idea as well, serving vets in the community by assisting them with home repairs, renovations and construction. They’ve spent over $70,000 in the last two months in their efforts to help veterans in the Chicagoland area.
