Organizers call on communities to honor returning soldiers

Although I have no family members in the military, I had the privilege of meeting a woman from Kremmling who is the mother of not one, but two Marines, one who is stationed in Iraq.

Through our chance, but important, encounter, we decided to do something to honor our returning Western Slope troops in two simple, but hopefully, lasting ways:

One is for every willing community to place a welcome home banner across its local highway. The other is for every participating community to share its homecoming celebrations with other communities so we all know our troops down to the man or woman.

In order to facilitate this taking place, we need to contact people in each community. We appreciate any help from the community. Please e-mail me at or Cynthia Lynch at
