ICYMI from earlier today: we dedicated the new supportive housing at 845 N 12th Street to Spc. Lural Lee Blevins III, one of the Edison HS 64 who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation in Vietnam. We were honored to have some of his family members with us. Thank you to Congressman Robert Brady, Rep. Dwight Evans and Dr. Johnson for all you have done and continue to do to support the Blevins family and to get Spc. Blevins the recognition he earned. Please watch, share and remember: our veterans deserve our support every day, not just on November 11.
