Just a quick thank you to the Mississippi National Guard for their part in making the vaccination process work as well as it is working. My Facebook, while not always the mirror of reality, has been full with happy customers singing the Guard’s praises. I believe it. Vaccinating a state during a pandemic is a big task. I’m grateful they are up to the job.
