This office only employs Veterans and is paid for by the State of Colorado - i.e., all services are free.
Also, Frank Griggs, founder of Veteran's Puppy for Life will speak about his non-profit foundation. Each puppy is trained to be a service dog and is selected from the time of birth for a specified Veteran. The Veteran is chosen through VA treatment facilities. Please join us to learn more.
We have a supply of T-Shirts (donated by Burt Evans), emblazoned on the front and back with our logo. Just $20 each for members and for new members, with a donation of $30, you receive a free T-Shirt. If you are helping put flags out at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs for the Memorial Day Remembrance, T-Shirts are suggested, but not required. The same is true for our participation in Monument's 4th of July Parade.
See you there! Bring your friends, spouses and significant others. Veteran children over 16 can also come, and if they are interested, join our group. Membership dues are always voluntary.
