Supporting our military

Connie Philipenko, Minot

While staying at my daughter’s home at Minot Air Force Base, while her husband, Aaron, is deployed overseas, I experienced an awesome sight. At 5 p.m. the National Anthem began to play over the sound system. Men and women stood at attention and vehicles around us stopped. I am so honored to live in Minot with the wonderful military personnel. Let’s stop complaining about all the things in Minot we don’t like and how our city has changed. Next time you meet someone in the military, stop and thank them for their service to our country and our city. God bless those at Minot AFB; we love having you here in our Magic City.
