Busy September...

From September 18th thru the 20th we had the editor of American Profile, Marta Aldrich and her husband Bill enjoy a stay; they even got to meet The First Gentleman, Chuck Franco, who, as you all know is a volunteer of ours.

Chuck took some time out of his busy schedule to spend with a few of our warriors. Not only can Chuck ride, but we found out he also paints! He has generously donated a signed sunset of his to be auctioned off during our Cowboy Christmas Dinner & Dance on December 9th,2011. Thanks Chuck!

Andrew Wilkow takes some time to come visit us and our Cowboy Up! program before heading back to the East Coast. After a quick bite of breakfast he got horseback and got a chance to ride along side a few of our veterans. Afterward, Andrew had the opportunity to sit and talk with Sgt. Andrew Brandi, author of the Warriors Guide to Insanity and his latest book, Warrior's Guide to Worlds At War.
