Where did you serve and what did you do?
Army National Guard Afghanistan 2010-2011
How are you #StillServing?
We are a very active post. We have been fortunate to have recruited a lot of OEF, OIF, Desert Storm Veterans to the post. We have held BBQ fundraisers, participated in war memorial ceremonies, flag placing days, awarded scholarships, cooked for local elementary school events, hosted appreciation dinners for local police cadets and boys/girls scouts, local army reserve units, participated in multiple city events and hold frequent mwr events for membership. Most recently a group of us started a committee to build the first in CT veterans war memorial for Afghanistan and Iraq veterans.
Why do you do it?
We all do it because even when we hang up our uniform our commitment to service and this great country doesn’t end. It’s our responsibility to help our fellow veterans and our community however we can. It’s our duty to help fellow veterans in need and to build/maintain the relationships within the veteran community. We want to be there for each other and the residents of our city and state.
