Natalie Breitung: Thanks Steamboat for showing you care about veterans

It is with deep and humbling gratitude that myself and fellow veteran members of the Leo Hill American Legion Post 44 want to thank all the generous business establishments and schools for giving back to all veterans and showing that we are “not forgotten” in this amazing community that we call home.

People say Steamboat Springs is differentiated from all the other ski towns in Colorado because it is more than just a ski town, it is community and I would wholeheartedly agree that this is very true.

With this being the 100-year anniversary of World War 1 and the 100-year anniversary of Leo Hill American Legion Post 44 here in Steamboat Springs, there have been over three generations of veterans from this magnificent countryside that have sacrificed and served our country; some gave all, and some came back to raise their families and prosper.   

You have shown that you care about veterans here in Steamboat Springs over this past Veterans Day holiday 2018. The amount of time and effort you have put into your generous gift of appreciation for veterans has moved all of us to a great degree, some to tears.  

As the first female commander of the post along with fellow Post 44 members, we look forward to continuing to serve our fellow veterans as well as the community itself through our service, engagement and giving back in the coming year and beyond.  

My sincere gratitude,

Natalie Breitung

Commander, Leo Hill American Legion Post 44
