Today was a special day ... We had the pleasure of assisting a WWII veteran. He was 94 and still going strong ... a little fragile but keeps going. He had a good memory and shared a bit with us. He did shed a few tears but he said he had never felt comfortable sharing anything before. But with us he did and he felt great when he left. It's great to not only provide  warm clothing to those in need but to also provide the type of environment that makes veterans comfortable enough to share what they need to share is a plus. We hope that with continued support from others we can keep our establishment open. Veterans are countless, the issues are numerous, and our government falls short in what it provides to our veterans. 
Thanks to all those who support us through donations.

Tonight our hearts are heavy as our Founder ... Billie Slaton ... is on the verge of passing. We pray for her and can't help but remember that it was her efforts that started this organization some 15+ years ago. She has helped thousands of veterans and never asked for anything in return. For me and my fellow veteran volunteers at the warehouse, she will always be in our hearts. Rarely in a lifetime can you find such a giving person, an angel of mercy for so many veterans. God Bless Billie Slaton.
