Our veterans and those who are still fighting for our freedom should always be remembered. The Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District has started an initiative with that goal in mind. At the headquarters building, the district has placed a box full of toy soldiers on their counter. A sign above it asks everyone to take one and place it in their home as a reminder of those in harm’s way. Chief Dennis Reilly says that the country has been at war for a long time and it is easy to forget the sacrifices made by the military and their families. He believes that any time we can recognize that service, we should do so.
