Nathaniel & Oliver – Heroes

Here you see heroes – the statue of Nathaniel Greens second in command to George Washington himself and Oliver Hazard Perry hero of the Battle of Lake Eire in the War of 1812. More recently the Heroes Garden on the west lawn commemorates the valor and bravery of the Rhode Islanders who gave their lives in the Iraq war. First on the list is Greg Belanger a fine young man who worked as a cook for me and met his sweet wife who Tara who also worked for us. He put country and family above all and we all need to thank him and every other person on every other memorial in Providence and beyond for what they gave so that we are independent and free.
