PADUCAH – The Daughters of the American Revolution has thanked 500 Vietnam Volunteers for their services. Those Vietnam Volunteers who came to The Wall That Heals on its arrival to Paducah received lapel pins as a mark of honor from DAR. Vietnam Volunteers who got the opportunity to receive a lapel pin expressed their feeling and shared their experience of serving abroad.

One of the Vietnam Veterans, Bobby Sikes, who received lapel pin in the opening week of April said that he served in the Navy abroad. While narrating his experience, he said volunteering offers a person to know himself and it gives an exposure to one for being oneself. He said that during the four years he served abroad, he enjoyed every second of it and he could never forget that time of his life. Sikes could not receive it during the time when the wall that heals came to Paducah. Apart from him, three other veterans received the lapel pin for their services.

Cynthia Bryd, the member of Daughters of the American Revolution said that it makes them proud to honor people for their service. Also, he said it has become a major part of her life to honor veterans at the wall that heals. She said it is an excellent initiative to help people realize their contribution as many people refuse to consider their service for the kind of treatment they receive during volunteering. And receiving a pin means a lot for volunteers and only the receiver could realize its value.

Usually, people use enamel pins to look stylish and they go for custom lapel pins made from enamel. Many also order custom lapel pins with no minimum quantity to use them on variety of their clothings. However, the lapel pins which DAR offers have different value and it is designed by keeping in mind the efforts of volunteers during their service.

Ethiopia which enjoys over 100-million people has remained out of reach of the private sector operations because the government had instituted a centralized economic model in this region. Because of the restrictions on private sector entities, the landlocked region has failed to grow well. Habtamu launched the taxi service, ZayRide after he failed to hail a taxi on demand but he faced a lot of opposition from regulators as they were confused between registering it as a transport company or software company.
