LINCOLN â€” Eddie and Patty Fox had been familiar with Wreaths Across America's work over the years to recognize the courage and sacrifices of our veterans, but it wasn't until last year that the couple began to think about how their home town of Lincoln could assist the mission.
The Foxes were the driving force behind the effort last year to raise money for a Vietnam Veterans Memorial, which was dedicated at the Lincoln Senior Center on May 21, 2011.
"It was a huge ceremony and over 400 people attended," said Patty.

PROVIDENCE - The game changed on an alley-oop.
Rhode Island freshman Jordan Hare rose above the Providence College defense to emphatically finish a perfectly executed play with 15 minutes, 22 seconds left in the second half to cut the Friars' lead to five.
As it turned out, the alley-oop was the best thing that happen to PC because Friar coach Ed Cooley opted to eschew his zone defense against the athletic Rams and play man-to-man. Over the next 8 minutes, 21 seconds the Rams didn't make a basket, went 0-for-8 from the field and committed six turnovers in a 72-57 defeat.
PROVIDENCE â€“ In the end, Bryce Cotton suited up for the Providence Friars. The real surprise came in the role he played Thursday night against intrastate rival Rhode Island.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Dan Hurley spent time under the same roof as one of his former high school players Thursday night. In his private moments, the URI head coach was probably thrilled that Sidiki Johnson was sitting on Providenceâ€™s bench wearing a sharp black suit rather than basketball attire.
