Letter: Thank you for honoring veteran on his birthday

| July 29, 2020 11:19 PM

My family and I would like to thank the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, especially Kyle Cox, the Moses Lake Fire Department, Moses Lake Police Department, Grant County Fire District No. 5 and the Patriot Guard for the awesome drive-by they did for our dad, Geb Galle, last Sunday for his 99th birthday. It was truly a wonderful sight to see and was very much appreciated.

My dad can’t stop talking about it and when it started he said, “What is going on?” I just told him that it was for him and he could not believe it. He said there are so many other veterans out there that deserve this. But we just told him this was for his special day.

Again, thank you so much for making this such a special day for him. All of these gentlemen do such a remarkable job for our community and to take the time to do this for our dad is truly admirable.

Lynda Palmer and the Galle family
