The breakfast is free to all veterans who attend and is only $10 for veteran supporters.
Special Guest Speaker is Dan Black from K9s for Veterans.
K9s for Veterans mission is to help veterans with post traumatic stress disorder transition back to civilian life once their military service has ended with the help of trained service dogs. We are committed to educating the public about the plight of veterans with PTSD and streamlining the process for them to get service dogs, so they get the help they need... Before it’s too late.
K9 provides free food and medicare care for the life of the service dog. The lifesaving efforts of K9s for Veterans are doubled by the exclusive use of rescue dogs from kill shelters to train as service dogs for our veterans. This approach truly epitomizes the question of “who rescued who”. Our duty is to be honest and thoughtful stewards of the funds our donors entrust us with so we can maximize their generosity and the number of veterans that benefit from it. Together, we can make a difference for these struggling heroes and the dogs who devote their lives to them.
Veteran of the Year award will be presented to a someone who resides in Tazewell County, has served and was honorably discharged from a branch of the U.S. military and is consistently active in our community by involving him or herself in causes or actions that give back and/or in some way, makes a difference in the lives of those in our community.
