    Dear Eric,
    A very warm welcome to our dedicated group of Veteran's. I firmly believe that if we help each other our paths to success will be in the right direction. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you through the task of creating your blogs. I would be interested in learning what your opinion was of your orientation. You next step in the blog creation would be "Who am I?
    I will be following you and waiting to hear your story.
    Thank you so much for your service.

      Hello Carol,
      I wanted to add a note to you and thank you for continuing to be a source of inspiration for our veterans (and to me). You are an inspiration as you do so much all of the time in so many ways. I can still see you smoking that cigar as the only female officer at the table with all the male Navy officers in the picture at SWVBRC center. Your courage and dedication are amazing!
      Thank you Carol for your service then and now, for helping SWVBRC to continue to grow and to reach out to all those who have served, and to encourage and support our veterans who deserve our gratitude and our blessings.
      God Bless,
      Christine Thayer

        Thank you Chris,
        Just for the record, my dinner partners were Marines.That historical event took place at Marine Corps Supply Center Barstow, CA in 1966. In his after dinner speech, General Masters remarked that if Carol Grice had lived during the days of Carrie Nation, Ms. Nation would have likely made much more progress.
        It is my pleasure to reach out to our Veterans. They are the heart and soul of this nation. We need to pray for their safety several time a day.
        I praise you as a civilian for showing your continued support.

          Hi Carol,
          Thanks for correcting me about your dinner partners being Marines not Navy! Oops! You are amazing! Thank you for setting such a great example by continuously being supportive and staying actively involved in SWVBRC programs for our veterans.
          God Bless, chris

    Hello Eric and Welcome!
    I am so glad to see you signed up as a Learner at SWVBRC in Perris. I am a civilian and a volunteer and I truly believe in supporting our veterans. I love your attitude Eric and love that you want to help your fellow veterans by having a place to meet and learn and share ideas to keep your lives healthy and prosperous. Albert Renteria is a good man and is helping us all to grow and learn how to be better community members serving others.

    Thank you for all your service and all that you are continuing to do your our country and our veterans.
