Temple Support for United States Veterans Having a Difficult Time with the fall of Afghanistan
The Temple sincerely appreciates and supports all its members who served our country in the armed forces. Right now veterans of all wars, but especially veterans who served in Afghanistan, report nationwide having a lot of emotions as we all watch images of those left behind in harms way trying to escape the Taliban. The Temple offers prayers for every one of our veterans and for those persons from all nations still in harms way.
