Thanks for devotion to veterans

This is merely a humble thank you owed to a true American, Ms. Laura Spain.

While words can never express my sincere appreciation, I must take the time to recognize a truly caring, dedicated and committed professional.

Ms. Laura Spain was the only individual that took the time to educate, and assist me with my Veteran Affairs issues/concerns. I visited, called and e-mailed several offices and individuals, all of which were either too busy, had no idea or just did not care.

The wealth of information and advice Ms. Spain provided, as well as the connections she shared were invaluable. Ms. Spain’s expertise and aid have been extremely useful and crucial during this process.

I am truly grateful to Ms. Spain and wish there was something more that could be done for this devoted patriot. I salute Ms. Spain and wish her Godspeed.

Tyler Boyd
Weatherford
