The West Liberty-Salem football team and cheerleaders gathered before sunrise to be part of the Logan County Vets to DC send off. Football players loaded luggage, wheelchairs, walkers, and anything else needed for around 50 veterans joining the Logan County Vets to DC. Cheerleaders lined the streets in Bellefontaine with other community members who gathered together to thank our veterans for their service to our country.
The Logan County Vets to DC program escorts veterans on a fully funded trip to Washington DC through the support of generous community donations. They loaded busses at the Logan County Fairground on Friday morning around 7 am. A motorcycle and police escort led them out of town in an exciting parade through downtown Bellefontaine.
It was a humbling experience for our students to be a part of such a great morning. Head Coach Dan McGill said, “This was a great opportunity for our students to give back to those who have given so much.” If you’d like more information about the Logan County Vets to DC, visit their website at www.vetstodc.org.
