Stacy Sweet

The R Countryman Chapter of the Korean War/Korea Service Veterans will meet on Tuesday, February 27th, in the Friendship Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club at 10:00 a.m. KWVA is proud to welcome Roger Pollard, Co-Chair of the AZ Wall Project and Board Member of Operation Welcome Home, and his wife, Betsy Pollard. Operation Welcome Home launched in 2010 and its mission is to “foster lifelong community patriotism by providing resources, education and recognition to our veterans and the community.”

The AZ Wall Project is a project of Operation Welcome Home and its mission is to “create an inspirational Arizona landmark reflective of the sacrifices veterans and their families have made for our country.” Roger will be presenting on the establishment of the Welcome Home Veterans Park in Gilbert, Arizona. He will describe the various exhibits recognizing those who served in America’s wars, from the Revolutionary War through Afghanistan and Iraq. They will not be forgotten!

Please join us and hear about this fascinating, permanent tribute to our veterans and their families!

A special thanks to our January speaker from Dispatch Health. Knowing there is an option of having the emergency room come to your own home will bring relief to people of all ages!

All veterans and their guests are welcome. You can learn more about us on our website at www.kwvacc.org or contact Leon Johnson, Commander, at 970-481-3005.

And remember, “Freedom is NOT free.”
