The St. Giles Veterans meet for breakfast the third Saturday of every month to fellowship and encourage each other in the faith. Join them at Joe's Inn in Bon Air. Contact John Harler for details, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our group was formed in 2005 following our annual Memorial Day Sunday salute to military members active, separated and retired. Colonel Billy Herrin (retired Air Force) organized 46 St. Giles members, and most who were not impacted by age or illness began meeting monthly at a local restaurant in August of 2005.
We decided originally not to have a “mission”, but to meet socially to better get to know each other. Having said that, some of our members visit the McGuire Veterans Hospital to let present-day members know that they are appreciated as we were in other conflicts and wars. Our members include veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and present day conflicts. Some St. Giles members serve in uniform today.
We are all proud to have served our country. We thank God for opportunities to have helped preserve peace. For those who did not return home, we salute them for their sacrifice and offer remembrances “To Those Who Have Gone Before.” If you’d like to know more about our ministry, please contact Henry Young.
