Support Our Troops
More Than Just Those Who Sacrifice to Defend Freedom...
They Are Our Neighbors!
As a United States Army Veteran, I understand on a very personal level how much it means to have support on the home front. It is difficult to help someone who has never served half the world away in a hostile environment understand just how much even one little letter or encouraging word can mean to a servicemembers morale.

Below are some Information Links to help support the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, & Coast Guard service men & women who are such a large part of our Colorado Springs & Pikes Peak Region community. Support Our Troops...they sacrifice for your freedom.
Remember to thank those who came before.
Remember those who went off to war.
Remember those who spend their day,
Protecting the American life and way.
Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice,
To secure your freedom to criticize.
Remember those who for over 200 years,
Have shed their blood, sweat, and tears.
Remember those who still leave hearth and home,
To defend those otherwise left alone.
Remember to give thanks every day,
For the soldiers past and present who say,
I stand vigilant, and if need be give my life away,
So that no harm will come, not this day.
