I had the honor of knowing Lt. Vernon Baker. He was a very humble man. I also know his wife Heidi. I traveled to St. Maries, Idaho and attended the Memorial Service where full Military honors were given to Lt. Baker, a WWII Hero. Arriving early and seeing the bikers who were Veterans lined up for blocks with flags displayed was a heartfelt experience. They too were there to honor Lt. Baker. I appreciate that Heidi gave me the opportunity to be on the program representing the NAACP. All of the people that we met were very friendly and caring. Groups of all ages wore white tee-shirts with Vernon Baker's name and picture on the front. The Military was wonderful in the planning and carrying out Lt. Baker's wishes. He requested Beethoven to be played at the Memorial Service and the group’s performance was magnificent. Vernon Baker was a great man that was deserving of the Medal of Honor. His memories will live on in the book that he wrote, Lasting Valor.

Lt. Baker, a man that showed love for his country at a time when his country unfairly judged him. Thank you family of Vernon Baker. The Remembrance of our hero will forever remind us it was the characteristics of this man that help change the world.
