Jon Nelson on our CVMF Board of Directors, recently applied the first layer of protective coating to the Campbell Veterans Memorial. This coating will help to protect this area of the Memorial during the winter months and also brings out the engraving of the bricks more vividly. Jon also installed all of the landscaping materials and sprinkler system to the Memorial (Pro-bono) Thanks very much Jon for all you’ve done there

CA General Regua’s many decorations include the Distinguishable Service Medal with bronze oak leaf cluster and the Legion of Merit and Meritorious Service Medals both with bronze oak leaf clusters.
The last assignment for General Regua was the Deputy Commanding General (DCG) of the Eighth Army, US Forces headquartered in Yongsan, Seoul. Korea. Prior to this he served as the Commanding General of the 75th Training Division (Mission Command) headquartered in Houston, Texas.
Congratulations on such a distinguished and stellar career General. It’s been an honor and pleasure to get to know you and we wish you and your wife Cirella the very best as you move into this next phase of your life.
Thank you Sir for being part of our team.
I had the pleasure of meeting Navy, LCDR Paul Francis at the CVMF site yesterday with Don and Lynda Campbell. Don and Lynda are great supporters of the CVMF Memorial and they also sponsored a brick for Lt. Commander Francis. LCDR Francis served in three conflicts as noted above, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. He was also a flight instructor during that time. He was trained to fly thirty five (35) different air craft and served as an instructor for each. He also flew several missions with each plane depending on what the plane was designed for, whether it be troop transit, or combat missions.
This Ninety Five year old Veteran is a real gentleman and treasure with quite a distinguished career. It was a great honor to meet him. Thanks to Don and Lynda Campbell for the introduction. He’s the gentleman in the middle with Don and Lynda. Thanks again to Don and Lynda for this introduction and thank you Sir for your distinguished service to this country.
Here is a great resource for Veterans looking for employment, and to all employers please take note and hire a Veteran.
The Benefits of hiring Veterans is they make great employees with their discipline, skill set, experience, loyalty, and their strong work ethic, which is second to none.

Capital Ground Memorials
As we begin this Memorial Day weekend let us all reflect on the men and woman of our military who have given so much to our countries freedom, both currently and in the past, by giving thanks and a little prayer before sitting down to your weekend festivities.
I would like to share a post quote I found early today.
Once again, Memorial Day will be upon us. Before lighting off the barbecue, etc. let’s take a moment to thank a serviceman, and/or a veteran.
From the time of our revolution in 1776 to the present, many Americans, both men and women, have made the supreme sacrifice to preserve what we all have today — the United States of America, the greatest country in the world!
