He has offered to be my personal tour guide for a visit to our first rate military museum. I could not be more honored. I feel like someone has given me a special gift which I will remember forever.

Witness Crimes this summer

No need to endure several evenings of dull sitcoms filled with clichés. On any given day from June 15-18, Ruston Community Theater’s veteran and new actors will offer a story which has fascinated me from my first encounter with it approximately 14 years ago.
