PARROTTSVILLE—Retired U.S. Army Col. Charles Lewis Moore told a group of veterans, their families and friends that, although the U.S. is “surrounded by wars and economic problems,” Americans enjoy four basic freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom to worship, freedom from fear, and freedom from want.

Col. Moore spoke at the sixth annual Veterans Picnic held in Parrott-Larue-Myers Park on Saturday, Sept. 28.

About 100 people, many of them veterans, attended the picnic and free hotdogs and barbecue.

Said Col. Moore, “Without veterans, we would not have this great nation ... Many Christians today are still persecuted in other nations, (but in the U.S.,) we’re free to attend church ... without fear of consequences.”
