REVA Luncheon for Veterans 2018

On May 25, 2018, in honor of Memorial Day, the Rivers Edge Veterans Association (REVA) hosted a luncheon for veterans residing at Arbor Landing Independent Living Community. Seven veterans representing the Army, Navy, Marine Corp and Air Force and service in WWII, Korean War and Vietnam were present. Seventeen members of REVA shared hamburgers, hot dogs, cake and few beers with the veterans. Stories of military service and the camaraderie among the veterans filled the air with laughter and moments of sadness as we paid homage to the veterans of our organizations who have recently passed away (Oscar Elsesser, Jack Sexton, Bob Leach and Bob Benjamin). This is the second Memorial Day luncheon REVA has shared with Arbor Landing and it is has been an honor for us to pay the respect due these honorable men.  (Click photos to view larger image)
