At Salute to America, a Highland Baptist Church (HBC) annual event, June 30, 2019, a selected veteran will be given a gift intended to bless their life in a way that they themselves are not able to do. Is there a veteran in your life who could benefit from a special blessing like this? No need is either too big or too small to be considered. To nominate that veteran to receive a gift from HBC, email firstname.lastname@example.org with this information, if known: the veteran’s first and last name, their contact information (phone, email, mailing address), when they served, what branch they served in, what is their need or why they deserve to be gifted, or why you are nominating them. The veteran needs to be local, living in Central Oregon, and have served during the Desert Storm to current eras. The deadline to submit a nomination is Memorial Day, May 27, 2019.
