DAR hosts annual veterans appreciation luncheon

The LaGrange de LaFayette chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honored 41 men and one woman veteran at a luncheon on November 9 at the Missionary Church in LaGrange. Area veterans representing military service from WWII through the current War on Terrorism were recognized during the lunch prepared by the chapter ladies.

Francis Grogg was recognized with a patriot pen for being the oldest of the 11 WWII veterans in attendance. War on Terrorism Captain R. Lincoln Thompson was the youngest veteran in attendance.

The U.S. Military was proudly represented by 14 Air Force, 14 Army, two Marine, 10 Navy, and three other service personnel at the luncheon.

To place a veteran’s name on the invitation list for 2014, send an e-mail to or contact any DAR member. It is the goal of the chapter to show appreciation to all area veterans for their service. The community is asked to help spread the word.
