Welcome Veterans & Spouses

We Need Your Help!

“Just so excited to see you all again!!!”

So much going on and time moving so extremely fast, summer is almost here. We all know how busy summer can be for all of us, so here is the scoop. I have the event listing updated to what I know as of now. So if any of the events that require a rsvp for meal counts please get them in to us right away, if you call please just leave me a voicemail or just text me. I have limited amount of space for Home Front and Vietnam. I did change our Vietnam so that those who wanted to go to the one at Clay Coopers could. Don't forget to book your places to stay soon they are going quick. God Bless you all and have a great few months till I see you in Nov.

When I returned Vietnam. I never heard a welcome home or thank you. It was even hard to find work. Years later we attended these events and got the welcome home I longed for. So we now attend regularly.

Denise “Dee” Elledge

Volunteer Producer

As a daughter of a Korean War Vet, she was excited to be able to organize a tribute to the Vets at Wal-mart 2010. With deep love n appreciation for our Veterans and their families, Dee takes great honor and joy to celebrate our Veterans. Dee says Veterans and their families are just extended families of her own. Dee also loves to take time and just listen to all the stories that they have to share, she says that is the best history lesson anyone could ever learn. Quote from Dee is “ If it wasn’t for our Veterans then we wouldn’t be able to do what we do today.” So inportant that we take care of our veterans in anyway possible and their families, remember they took care of us and they didn’t know us. Dee is the 2018 recipent of the Capt. John Koutrakos PATRIOTISM AWARD, way to go my friend, love Sarah.
