New appreciation for those who serve

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Donna Brunette of Ford River:

I just read a very uplifting and informative article written by Dan Paul. “A day in the life of an American Soldier” (Daily Press, Wednesday, Nov. 9).

I had no idea what a day was like now I do. They are doing something constantly and are ready for anything.

I have always been very proud of all soldiers and veterans, now even more so knowing the preparation they have to go thru to keep our America safe and free. Thank you.


Each Saturday the Daily Press salutes individuals and groups from our area who have had a very positive impact on the way we live.

We identify our bouquet recipients in one of two ways: from Daily Press news pages and from nominations sent in by our readers.

Mail us a postcard or letter identifying your nomination and putting into detail what they’ve done. Include your name, address, and phone number. Send nominations to Saturday Bouquets, The Daily Press, 600 Ludington Street, Escanaba, MI 49829.

They may also be sent to us by going to our Web site,, and clicking on the submit news button. Once there, click on “Bouquets” and follow the simple instructions.
