It was gratifying to see the support for the local National Guard troop as they were being deployed.

I remember 29 years ago, as I was a member of the local unit leaving for active duty. It meant so much to me to see the support of the community, and I am sure these soldiers have the same feeling.

I was in front of the Belk store along with a number of patriotic people waving the flag. I hope the community will continue to give them support. I know, It means so much.
