I had the distinct pleasure of participating in the 2017 Salute to American Veterans Rally at Cripple Creek. The two day event was nothing less than phenomenal! The program highlighted what it means to be a Veteran helping other Veterans. There were so many acts of kindness displayed during the event, and even included the gift of a Trike to a disabled Veteran so that he could enjoy doing what he loved to do before being injured in service of his country. I am truly amazed at the camaraderie of the event and will continue to attend as long as I am able.
