To the Editor,
There is an organization within Robeson County that is pursuing a purpose noteworthy of high praise. The Robeson County Honor Guard is a nonprofit, veteran-run, civic-minded, multi-racial, all-volunteer force of local citizens who dutifully perform a service unlike all others within Robeson.
These selfless volunteers are on-call to suit up in military honor attire so as to provide the distinguished service of memorializing our deceased military veterans. Over the years this distinctive corps of ladies and gentlemen has provided the appropriate final military salute to those who served. As former military members, the Robeson Honor Guard symbolizes our current Department of Defense, multi-cultural, multi-service and bonded by honor and duty. When the opportunity presents itself, take the time to say thanks to these noble veterans.
In line with this overarching purpose of civic-minded leadership, the Honor Guard is sponsoring a political debate for county commissioner District 4 on Thursday from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. at Prospect School Gymnasium. Candidates are Mr. Noah Woods and Mrs. Faline Locklear-Dial.
All are welcome to attend and participate in the political process.
