It was a special night for retiring Winnebago county Sheriff Dick Meyers. He was the guest of honor at a dinner at LZ Lino’s, otherwise known as Lino’s Restaurant. About 23 members of the Vietnam Veterans Honor Society presented the Sheriff with a cake, a hat, a bag of Vet-Chips and a beautiful plaque thanking him for his long support.
Here’s what Nick Parnello, the President of the Vietnam Veterans Honor Society, had to say about Sheriff Meyers, “In over twenty years he has always been a friend to his brother veterans and helped to honor those veterans from Winnebago county.
A long time. A good man. A Navy veteran. A outstanding career in law enforcement and public service.
And a great friend and supporter of the Vietnam Veterans Honor Society.
Thanks for everything and we hope you enjoy your retirement.
