Today was that day……..

“It was a very touching time for me.  Ever since Viet Nam I have wanted to be able to do SOMETHING to show how much I appreciate every soldier for everything they have done for me and my country.  Today was that day, and I made a point of thanking each and every one of them.  I shook the hands of some of them  and hugged others.  I won’t forget this special day, and I don’t think they will either.  I can’t wait until next year.”

Roseburg VA Photos by Soldiers Angel Sandy Marcell 1st frame : Chef at the Luncheon. Awesome apron! The Candy filled mugs and balloons were for the patients. 2nd frame: The second picture is of our Vet's playing the Wii game (SA gave them) during the celebration. They had a great time. It really is a great way to exercise. I hear it is quite addictive. 3rd Frame: a quilter demonstrating some of the wares. You can see some of themwere made by our Angel's. They were beautiful.
