    Shooter,
    I applaud you and all the others who are supporting and putting on this event. So many people take our vets for granted or simply turn a blind eye to what has and is happening. When we came home people would spit as us and call us names. Today, at least they are taking somewhat of a part and some are starting to understand what being a vet means. I wish you all the luck in getting a good crowd and having a good turn out. Thank you so much for what you are doing and may God bless you!!

    Tommy

    Thanks Tommy...

    My wife and I joined Operation First Response way back in 2002, when the first badly wounded vets started coming home from Afghanistan.

    Every year since we get together with this fine organization to help sponsor, run and participate in anyway we can to keep the mission going...

    Besides this event...we were privileged to help at the Walk for the Wounded in Rose Tree Park in Media, PA...another annual gathering this year.

    I encourage everyone to help our Heroes anyway they can....support through donations...join an organization like Operation First Response or Wounded Warrior Project...

    Visit a Veterans Hospital...anything or anyway...just GET INVOLVED !!

    Thank You All !!


    God Bless the Men & Women of the United States Armed Forces...and the Wounded Veterans of all Wars...for their courage and sacrifice !!!

    I support the DAV and the PVA with donations every spring. My own service in the 2nd half of the '50s didn't involve people shooting at me.
