Annual Veterans' Appreciation Breakfast and Civilian Success Fair
1543_ 5/8/14 - Last week, Larry was a speaker at the Denver Southeast Rotary Club. Afterwards, we met and spoke with Bill Palmer who is chairing the Denver Southeast Rotary's 8th Annual Veterans' Appreciation Breakfast and Civilian Success Fair ... May 24th, 2014 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Wings Over the Rockies Museum. This is not a job fair - we're really trying to help the veterans with the processes necessary for their success! Bill, US Navy retired, Commanding Officer, USS Denver, and Fast Frigate Trainer, Buckley, CO. and Vietnam Veteran. Bill wanted to do more for our Military veterans as he worked on this program . 'A great breakfast, a patriotic program, thank you for your service' is all great, but Bill wanted more - These men and women have given so much to our country and Bill wanted to do something that would really help these veterans. "You know they can't just go to the VA Hospital and get help - there's a process you must go through." Getting help can be complicated, getting to know their families again, assimilating back into civilian life is not an easy task. These men and women have been through an incredible journey and that journey has changed them. So in addition to that wonderful, plated breakfast and excellent patriotic program [Senator Hank Brown, Senator Mark Udall and keynote speaker Major General Jay Lindell] they've come up with the add-on "Civilian Success Fair". The Mission: To show America's Veterans appreciation for what they have done, have been willing to do for our country and to assist them with tools for success following their service. The Goal: For you to leave better prepared, to enhance your life through personal growth.
Breakout opportunities at the Success Fair: Your time to interact with those who can help you make a better life for yourself. Higher Ed: G. I. Bill mentors; PTS: Counselors to advise how to navigate the VA mental health system; Homeless Services; Emergency Services; Job Hunting Assistance; Job Placement.... there's much more. Be sure to register - it is completely free for Veterans.
