‘Stand Up Celebration’ For Vets Coming To Sauk Centre
AN EVENT FOR VETERANS, THEIR FAMILIES & OUR COMMUNITY
Freedom...Is...NOT...Free. We all have our fair share of problems. Our days may not be perfect. We have illnesses; we have challenges; we have lots of problems in our country. But one thing I truly believe; There is no other country that I'd rather live in than these United States of America.
I often think of those individuals who have lost their lives, fighting for you and I; so that we can wake up...safe in our beds...without fear of our very freedoms being taken away. What do you say to someone who has fought for that right? It can be overwhelming to speak about; but the feeling is deep inside.
This Healing Celebration helps raise money, finances and awareness to the problems our nation’s veterans face returning to civilian life including issues with mental illness and substance abuse problems.
67% served three or more tours combat, 33% were stationed in a war zone, 25% have used VA Homeless Services, and 89% have received an honorable discharge.
There will be round table discussions and speakers on topics such as:
- Agent Orange
- Community Outreach
- Veteran Service Agencies
- Medical & Dental Services
- Regional Veteran Employment Opportunities
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
Participate, celebrate, and help those who have fought for our freedoms. The Stand Up Celebration is a way for you and your loved ones to do just that.
