I have been a member of the Valley Color Guard for more than ten years, and I believe I am qualified to make the following assessment.
The Valley Color Guard works tirelessly to ensure veterans receive the final military honor and respect that they have earned. As much as it is a privilege, it can also take a personal toll on members of the guard.
That burden was lessened in recent years by the unconditional support of Jeff Gural, owner of Tioga Downs in Nichols, N.Y., and exemplifies the values associated with never forgetting those who have served and have earned the heartfelt admiration of every member of the Valley Color Guard.
