PTSD is a serious matter and should be taken seriously. The number of suicides in the Military and with Veterans is alarming.
Please seek medical help if you find yourself struggling and especially if you have thoughts of suicide.

Great day at the warehouse today .... Many Vets came and got warm boots & clothing. Always great to meet new faces and share stories of military service as well as life.
The Sanford Highway Dept. was gracious enough to open some street parking for Vets and Our Guy Chris did some snow blowing.
All the Volunteers are working hard to organize the new shipment so that we can get bags filled with the new items.
******************************************************
We are open through the end of May / Friday's 9 to Noon.

We received the first part of our shipment yesterday ... but due to snow issues the next part of our shipment will not arrive until this Friday 2/13/15 ... Also ... There is so much snow on Pioneer Ave. that there is no parking until it can be moved. That means we will be closed for awhile. We hope to open 2/27/15 ... We will do our best to meet that date.
*********************************************************
The good news is that we did get some boots in ... along with sleeping bags, blankets, gloves, and more. 
*********************************************************
So be patient and we will do our best to serve you.
