Tomorrow will mark a day to remember the numerous men and women who have served our nation to protect our families and defend our freedoms. Tomorrow is a day to be thankful for the special people who put their lives on the line to protect our own.
We are proud to recognize our area veterans, those throughout the nation and beyond for their commitment to our great country.
On behalf of our entire Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team, we thank you.
