    Thank all of you for your service to this country. Our family appreciates all that you do to honor the American Servicemen. What a lovely tribute for my Dad, Milton Lange Sr. back in January. Again now for my husband, Kenneth Menzel. Please use this donation to further your tribute to Veterans. Marjorie Menzel
