This past November the member of Braintree Open Roads made and decorated cards for Veteran’s Day. The cards were sent to Corporal Joseph Hoover (a cousin of one of the staff) who is stationed in Afghanistan with the United States Marine Corps. About two weeks before Christmas a package arrived at the program. The members were very excited to see what was in the mysterious box. Corporal Hoover sent the Road to Responsibility Open Roads program a letter thanking them for their cards, telling them that he had shared their cards with other soldiers stationed at the base, and everyone thought they were fabulous. With the letter was a certificate and an official American Flag. The certificate certifies that the American Flag was flown over the base that Corporal Hoover is stationed. Corporal Hoover dedicated the flag to Road to Responsibility – Open Roads on November 24, 2012. The members were so proud the American Soldiers fighting for our country took the time to think about such a small program in Massachusetts! Our flag and certificate are proudly on display in our lobby.
