Project Serves Corridor Vets
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Corridor veterans opened the doors at The Sanctuary church in Cedar Rapids on Sunday night to honor and thank other local vets.
Organizers said they put together Project: Serve the Vets as a way to remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The event included a meal, performances by two bands, and a sermon by a veteran. The goal was to make all vets feel like they have a home, organizers said.
"So often, the freedoms we take for granted are forgotten, and we don't necessarily say, 'Thank you' as much as we should," said pastor and veteran John Hankins.
Students from a local social studies class also wrote letters for the veterans to take home as part of a gift bag, as well.
