What an honor it is to have him along with his guest speakers pick Cleveland as a stop on The Patriot Tour! www.patriottour.com (http://www.patriottour.com)
Veterans are a special breed of people. Admired by all, they have shaped the country in which we live. True to their country as well as their families, we understand the respect they deserve. Jason & Crystal Jardine, along with their staff at Jardine Funeral Home and Cleveland Cremation, take pride in honoring our Veterans. In the Cleveland area, Jardine Funeral Home and Cleveland Cremation are the Honored Providers of Veterans Funeral Care. Across the United States, there are 38 states affiliated Veterans Funeral Care with well over 125 Veterans Funeral Care locations. Not only do they help our Veterans and their families understand the benefits they have earned and help them with funeral planning, they like to spend time with them. Each and every one of them have helped give us what we have today - Our Freedom.
Jason and Crystal, both, had members of their family serve in the Military. Crystal's grandfather served in the US Army and was a Silver Star recipient. Her dad also served in the US Navy and she has 2 uncles who served with the USMC. Jason's grandfather also served in the US Army. Over the past year, Crystal has worked closely with Cindy Dietz, Danny Dietz's mom. Danny served with Marcus on Seal Team 10 and in Operation Redwing. Together, they created a website, www.NavySealDannyDietz.com, to help raise funds for The Danny Dietz Memorial Fund. Jason and Crystal are also personal friends of the 12th Sgt. Major of the USMC - Gene Overstreet, who also endorses Veterans Funeral Care. Their involvement in the Veteran community does not stop there. Last year, they brought an Iraq War Memorial, Lima Company "Eyes of Freedom" to Strongsville for 3 days. This Memorial is much like the Vietnam Wall. They believe so strongly in its message, that Crystal now has organized tours for the Memorial with VFC affiliates across the US. Recently, The Memorial has been to Georgia, North Carolina, Washington DC and Virginia. The next tours start in April with a Florida tour then to the mid-west for a 7 State tour. Cleveland is again on the tour - May 1-3.
Showing our Veterans that the time they served is well appreciated is their passion and they take great pride in doing so.
We appreciate our Veterans and their service and what they do for other Veterans everyday. It was our honor to invite 25 of our local are Veterans from 3 VFW Posts - Strongsville VFW Post 3345, Columbia Station Post 9340, and Brunswick VFW Post 9520. We have the Post Commanders in attendance, along with Post Officers and Honor Guard members.
