Still kicking

Wow, it's been almost 3 years since I last posted. Not much has changed. We moved into a smaller house with half the yard to maintain. It does have an extra garage for my stuff though. I'm still taking classes at Front Range. I completed my AAS in Horticulture a couple semesters ago and have moved on to Paralegal Studies. Maybe one of these daze, I'll have enough time to finish this writing. 

Another milestone passed last month, 41 years since I stepped on the Yellow foot prints at MCRD San Diego. I made a Facebook post and lo and behold, one of my platoon members made a comment that he got there the same day. His memory was a bit fuzzy about some things. He also said he lost all his USMC memorabilia in a tornado. I will scan our platoon book for him as well as our platoon picture.

A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
