I also attended the VET EXPO Friday in Utica NY. We honored Veterans, their Friends, and Families. I sponsored my charity benefit I started in JULY in honor of my son LANCE CPL MARINE currently serving in AFGHANISTAN and my 2 nephews, one a SGT CALVARY SCOUT earning a purple heart from 1 of his 2 tours in IRAQ when he was seriously wounded when an exposlive device went off. Sgt. Kenneth Seeholzer, is a true AMERICAN HERO! My son Lance CPLJoseph Hranek is also my hero! My sister Vanessa (Ken's mom) helped me at the EXPO as I have disabilities, and my other sister Debbie's son just returned home from a tour overseas in the ARMY. We raised a substantial amount of $$$$$ for the charity benefit I started in their honors CANS FOR COOKIES US TROOPS. Also many of my college students donated their time, cookies, can goods, and $$$ to help cover shipping costs of homemade cookies. Please visit the blog and see what you can do to help make the holidays bright for those serving overseas and stateside!
