Hi Marchel, US Vets is a very worthy cause.  Hope the run has a large turnout.

HUGH, They are doing a wonderful service for our forgotten Vets.  I'm sure the director would be happy to tell you about it if you would like additional information.  Just let me know.

AUDREY, I wouldn't mind helping give drinks or something but a runner I am NOT.

DALE, Like I told Hugh if you would like to get in contact with Tom who is the director here I'm sure he would be happy to tell you about it.  What branch of the service were you in?

SHIRLEY, It is a worthy cause and I also hope they have great weather and a great turnout.

KAREN, All I can say is DITTO.

Marchel, this sounds great, as a Vet I know we cannot do enough for them.  Homeless Vets, unreal, but it is happening in every backyard these days even more so.  Good post. Great information, great day coming.
