Thank you for honoring our hero


On behalf of the Feliz Family, we would like to thank the American Legion Post No. 9 for honoring our World War II hero George M. Feliz during this year’s Veterans Day ceremony. The Legion went above and beyond to honor our hero. We are grateful and appreciative of all that they did for us and our community. Their kindness was a great example of the community love that our family loves and has valued since coming to Florence four generations ago.

We lost our hero on Nov. 20, 2020 at the age of 96 and miss him every day, but we know that he was beaming with pride on Nov. 11th as he was being honored for his service. Again to the American Legion, all our local veterans, heroes, and volunteers from the bottom of our heart we thank you and appreciate each of you!
