Day of Remembrance

Wednesday, September 22nd 2021
A Monthly Tradition since 2013
Day of Remembrance for Our Veterans who are no longer with us.
Check on those Veterans who might be in a “BADD” place!

Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.
Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year,
it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise
and get in Good trouble, Necessary trouble.
