LaGrange Missouri Stands Up

A must see web site, LaGrange Stands Up.

As I have said many times, it is Small Town America that is our greatest strength and the true backbone of America. In LaGrange, Missouri, a Small Town of about 1,000 dating back to 1832, residents woke up to the dis-repair of its monuments and lack of notice towards Veterans buried in the town cemetery, through the outstanding efforts of Pat Livingston, a female Viet Nam Veteran and resident in the community.

Through her prodding, stumping and outright begging, LaGrange's Monuments have been refurbished and residents have gained a whole new appreciation for our Nation's Fallen heroes. I hope reading her story encourages others Small Town America's to stand up with Pat and return America to the greatness lurking within us.

One person at a time...one community at a time...one county at a time.

We CAN do it.
